Anyone can use it

Excellent quality and does the job well

Had a different brand that was plastic and it broke after a couple of uses, principally because it wasn't strong enough. Found this as an alternative and wished I had bought it in the first place! Excellent quality and does a brilliant job of removing the weeds.

Good for removing most weeds But .requires quite a lot of strength to pull out all the longer tap roots. This is difficult on my wet and heavy clay soil!

Excellent product

Easy to use without straining your back. Makes light work of thistles and other troublesome weeds in lawns and beds. Excellent design and sensibly priced:one of the best tools I have.

Dandy weeder

Great for accessing dandilions in the borders and lawn. Have to admit that its mainly the borders where ive successfully removed dandilions. Centre the corkscrew over the head of the offending weed and screw down as far as it will go then pull up wards thus removing the weed without too much disturbance to surrounding plants. Only used it once in the lawn on a small dandilion so. Not too sure of what if any damage may be caused in the lawn if the dandilion was large and i would have had to screw deeper.

Bent on first use

1

Got this to remove tap rooted weeds from the lawn, but it didn't do the job. It was hard to get it into the ground, awkward to twist, and then it bent. I assume this was because the lawn was quite compacted, but given that is not unusual with a lawn, I can only assume it is not really fit for purpose. My first use was some time after I had bought it, otherwise I would have returned it.

Lawn overhaul, am I doing it right? Hello again, Since we have been using your web site and getting our plants and shrubs from you we have to say, that although it is a bit of a treck for us to get to you, it has always been well worth the trip. I have another project to do now and that is to completely overhaul the lawn. It's 120 sq mtrs and has developed brown patches and has not grown much this summer. I intend to give it a good scarifying , aerate it properly, give it a good feed then completely re-seed it. Can I put lawn sand on top of the seed to protect it from the birds, as we have 2 pigeons and blackbirds who visit our bird table. I had a lot of conifers in the garden which I have had removed stumps and all, - I think they were taking a lot of moisture out of the grass. Do you think I am going about the refurb.of the lawn in the right way. Yours Tom

Hello Tom, There are many reasons why lawns develop brown patches, but it may be that yours just needs a bit of TLC. It sounds as if your planning on doing everything correctly, but I would be careful about feeding as this may burn the new grass seedlings. As for using sand, your best option may be to mix the seed with the sand before you spread it as this will also make it easier to see where you are placing it. I hope this helps and good luck.

How to control weeds

‘One year's seed is seven year's weed’, or so the saying goes, so the most important thing an organic gardener (and non-organic gardener for that matter) can do is prevent weeds from flowering and setting seed. A horrifying example of this is chickweed,

Continue Weeding

Make sure you dig up weeds before they flower and set seed. The easiest way to do this is to hoe between permanent plants when the weeds are still small. Hand weed around the emerging shoots of bulbs and herbaceous plants to prevent damage.
