What was used before weed killers were invented.?

Well a weed is a useful plant that just grows in the wrong place.. be it a country, climate, the bush, the lawn, a stream, reef or garden.

Therefore the following are not weeds

Rocket and parsley self seeds in my garden. Can be a weed ,but tolerate and use it.
I once had a small ,well maintained patch of nettle. Did not allow it to seed or spread. Thats regarded as a weed. But on the plus side i had the beautiful Red Admiral ,and also the yellow Admiral butterflies visit and lay eggs on the nettle.



Before weedkiller people proberly pulled the weed out. Still the best way to go imo
 I explained that above.. its about preventing weeds  AFTER they get 'pulled' or hit with round up.

The biggest laugh of all is the honey sellers themselves.And its over manuka honey.  Ask any beekeeper and they will tell you that eating Manuka honey is of no benefit to you internally but actually is bad for your stomach. It is of Great benefit if spread on your skin in balms etc. The same active ingredient that heals and helps your skin, stuffs your stomach lining and inner bacteria.    Ranks up there along with 100% pure NZ as well played cons.   
If you think you are too small to make a difference,try sleeping with a mosquito in your tent.

And add to that ,we are told that Honey is" Bee vomit"
And in this case with a  dash of roundup for added body and flavour.. yum.

Some of the organic weedkillers are fatty acids.
Just can't remember trade names.
Have used them - with limited success.

 Yes.. they take out the plant top/ leaves.. which means and tap root type plant simply grows more leaves, a root plant like a grass cant and will die.
 Hence "limited success"

basically a chemical chipper..like the old paraquat.

And "natural" in so many cases, even food, cosmetics etc is marketing BS.
So many " natural" chemicals , occur naturally , now manufactured synthetically rather than extracted, and once concentrated are very dangerous drugs, chemicals...

An obsolete natural garden insect killer was soaked , tobacco leaf.. extremely effective and left nicotine at rise traces on garden food with very long with holding periods  and in some cases remained permanent contamination.

Sprayed my front paddock (about 2 acres) with knapsack sprayers Wednesday. Got a permanent ache in left arm I was using to pump up the sprayer, but hey getting a good kill on the buttercup. Tried a new spray 'decision'. Would have used tractor sprayer, but had to move boat and then tractor carry all and then tractor slasher to get at tractor sprayer. Wasn't worth it for a couple of acres.
