Cut’n’Paste Original is a broad spectrum gel that will kill grasses and broadleaf weeds by stump treatment or leaf wiping. Use the Original Glyphosate gel on any grass weeds like small Pampass, boneseed, kikuyu, twitch or couch grass just smear onto the underside of some growing tips.  Fantastic too for convululus, ink weed and other herbaceous weeds.  Used well it will kill many other plants including most shrubs.

Bamboo Buster is double strength where you’re dealing with known tough customers like privet, gorse and rhamnus and of course Bamboo.  Always apply the gel IMMEDIATELY after cutting.  A delay of only a few seconds can seriously affect the results.  Working as a team of two achieves the best outcomes.

Glimax our super triple strength glyphosate gel is recommended for Old Man’s Beard and other woody vines where you need to get the maximum active into a small stem.  Can be used on pretty much any weed to good effect.

MetGel is the best gel for Gingers and other rhizomatous and tuberous plants.  Take care it’s soil residual. It won’t work on Solanacea like Wooly Nightshade.

Picloram is a soil residual herbicide too and is very tough on most broadleaf shrubs and trees but ineffective on grasses.
