Large areas can be tackled by various glysophate concentrates whereas the green areas and grasses are saved by selective herbicides but when it comes to individual perennial weeds in paths and flower borders, there are a very few measures available to control them. In such a challenging niche, Hozelock promises effective weed control with the Hozelock Wonder Weeder.
The Hozelock Wonder Weeder is a unique weeding tool with a special delivery medium which helps control weeds on driveways, paths and patios, using the best weed killer of your choice.
