No, not joking I got 5kg on ebay for £30 I now need more, same seller has it for £100 :shock:

Looked elsewhere and its either out of stock or not equally high priced (and out of stock)

Thoughts?

Or is there anything else I can use to kill lots of weeds?

The seller hasn't actually got any, but the price puts anyone off from buying it so they can legitimately keep the item listed which saves on re-listing fees.

Wasn't this stuff banned about 10 years ago (for domestic use anyway??) I could be wrong. I often am. :lol:

What sort of weeds are you trying to get rid of S/E ??

Not being funny, the only weed that I can call by name is dandelion, i just want to kill all the weeds what ever they are called. I have used this stuff and it has killed my weeds, but I need to go to my mothers (she is an OAP) and kill all her weeds too, so I need some more of this, or anything else that will kill dandelions and its mates.

Hi someone-else
Ammonium sulphamate was indeed banned as a herbicide by the eu but only on a technicality it is still sold as a composte accelerator and stump rotter supposed to be very good as a weed killer I hear it kills off marestail and horsetail
If you want it then they might have it in at the pitch and golf course amenity suppliers
https://www.amenity.co.uk/compost-and-p ... -25kg.html
But if its only your average weeds eg rose bay willow herb, dandelion, dock, nettle, goose grass couch etc then glyphosate will do it is being discounted now in the shops so.
If you haven't got a spray then you can buy the ones with a spray built in which is quicker

I have used rosate glyphosate 360g/l this year on the allotment it has killed everything but it takes about 3 weeks to really show
Some of the shop bought glyphosate is 90g/l so doesn't go so far . A second spray is sometimes needed to catch the weeds you have missed or to finish off the stuff that is half dead

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rosate-36-36 ... SwtaRa8Jn8
pays to wear gloves and a face mask and not spray on anything you want to survive including pets, bees. Once dry should be inert

I bought 25 kilos a few months ago from a place in Northern Ireland. It cost me £81. I can't view your ebay link so I don't know if it's the same seller.

I'll check outthe seller later for you.

Edit:

Mistral Industrial Chemicals
Unit U Enkalon Industrial Estate
Randalstown Road, Antrim
BT41 4LJ, Northern Ireland

£27 for 5kg and free shipping.

The page has blanked out the https. I can't remember how to fix it

Why not ? Young leaves are tasty enough although the older ones are a tad bitter , flowers are edible and make decent wine reminiscent of retsina and the roots can be roasted to make coffee.
'Course if you mean don't pick them after they have been doust in poisons then I agree.
