Questions & Answers

Can I use this to inject herbicide to kill roots from a tree stump been removed

Can I use this to inject herbicide to kill roots from a tree stump been removed
Asked by: cheryl
I don't see why not although I never heard of anyone using it for that purpose before, mainly it was designed and made for fertilization purposes only not to be use as or with any herbicides since there could be a possibility of having trace amounts of the herbicide left in the feeder that could pose a harm or danger to any plants that are fragile if not 100% completely and totally flushed out clean. Some herbicides come usually in liquid form concentrate to be sprayed on the leaves and the surrounding ground to rid the area of unwanted vegetation.

can a granular fertilizer be used with this feeding system?

ie from any manufacture not just Ross.
Asked by: sparty
If the granules don't dissolve quickly they tend to plug up the very tiny exit hole. I tried a broken Jobe fertilizer spike and it doesn't work. Products like Miracle-Gro works but it dissolves and disappears so quickly you'll have to constantly refill. For one or two specific plants the work might be worth the effort. I use this thing to deep water and then shove a Jobe spike down the hole it created before moving on to the next shrub.
