    Epiphany, my local newsagent and the general store both keep all the copies of papers which havent been sold. They eventually return them for recycling. They are usually happy to hand over an armload or two if I ask. God knows how many millions of words someone thought fit to print is currently feeding the worms under the mulch!

    Fishfood: You’ve done this before? Can you explain how much super is required? A few pellets around the infested area, or a handful?

    I’d much rather use super than glyphosate.

    And how long did it take before you saw the onion weed die off? Did it kill all of them? This sounds promising.

    Salt is another solution if there are weedy areas which you will not be growing anything in.

    Greth, guinea pigs are hungry little creatures and if you have enough of them can do substantial damage to any weedy area :tup:

    What I struggle with here is that fact that burning organic matter such as tobacco releases several deadly chemicals, how is it possible that burning other types of plant material and then growing a crop in it any different?
