06 Nov REVIEW: Amgrow Organix Weed Blitz 1L ready to use
Those of you pining for a registered organic weed control spray for the home market are in luck with this latest offering from the people at Amgrow.
Amgrow Organix Weed Blitz 1L ready to use – $14.95.
The active ingredient of this herbicide is pine oil, extracted from both Australian and New Zealand pine. It works by stripping the coating from leaves, stems and even seeds to which it is applied, causing the collapse of the cells and thus the plant itself. It is wholly plant-derived and certified organic. If you understand it’s action you can now understand why it would not be the best solution to bulbous or woody perennial weeds which would burn-off then most-likely recover. It does, however, work an absolute treat in killing juvenile perennial as well as most annual weeds.
The first thing I noticed when testing this product was the smell. It smells great, not something generally associated with garden sprays. I found it worked extremely effectively at desiccating weeds quickly even on overcast, cooler days. The effect can be noticed almost instantaneously with weeds often curling over within the hour.
My only negative would be that it is currently only available in a ready to use pack does make it a bit on the expensive side for regular use so I hope a concentrate pack is in the works.
