    I might try that for Bird's Foot Trefoil. Despite glyphosating my lawn, BFT is growing again, presumably from the underground roots rather than seed.

    Bought Kurtail from ebay...and within a week you see results on horsetail. but recommend you wear appropriate protective clothing when applying as its toxic (as are most weedkillers)

    I'm glad you posted this, I bought some from ebay too and am off to buy some protective clothing so I can apply it later today. Expensive, but if it works I'll be happy.

    It's only a game

    I just wore some long sleeve rubber gloves, safety specs, and old waterproof coat and jeans. I applied using the 2litre sprayer from Wilko (£2.50). Don't waste time using watering can, Progreen recommend a sprayer to make sure the weedkiller droplets reach each plant.
