Roundup Speed Ultra is a fast acting multi-purpose weedkiller with no glysophate* for use on unwanted vegetation. It can be used to kill broad leaved weeds and grasses in paths, drives, patios, and around the bases of roses, ornamental shrubs and trees. Treated areas can be re-planted or re-seeded the day after treatment.
How to use
Shake well before use.
Although not a requirement, as good practice, we recommend wearing waterproof gloves and gardening footwear.
- Push the security tab until it breaks from the trigger.
- Rotate nozzle to ‘spray’ or ‘stream’ position Hold the sprayer approx. 50cm away from the target weed and spray to lightly wet the weeds - avoid run-off.
- Rotate nozzle to ‘STOP’ after use.
- Apply at no more than 100ml/m².
For best results: treat weeds at the start of flowering to give best results.
Do not apply when rainfall is expected within 6 hours of application. Do not apply when flowering weeds are present. Direct spray away from ponds and other surface water bodies. Do not empty into drains. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. Allow the spray to dry before walking or playing on treated areas. Treated areas can be re-planted or re-seeded the day after treatment.
Where to use
Controls most weeds around the garden, e.g. gravel areas, paths, drives, hard surfaces, patios, tarmac, along fences and for edging lawns.
Can be used to clean up weedy ground before planting vegetables, flowers, bushes and trees, and to renovate overgrown areas.
How often to apply
Use in March to October when the weeds are actively growing and have adequate leaf area to absorb the spray.
Rain within 6 hours of spraying reduces effectiveness and repeat treatment may be necessary.
Apply in calm conditions to avoid drift onto cultivated plants.
Repeat treatment after a minimum of 14 days where re-growth occurs.
For deep-rooted perennial weeds such as bindweed use a product containing glyphosate, for example Roundup® Total Weedkiller.
Maximum number of treatments: 4 per year.
