Cuts and Scrapes in the Garden

After spending two days last week on a Red Cross First Aid course I now feel qualified to deal with the most severe paper cuts or perhaps cuts and scrapes in the garden.

The course was very good and something I have always thought I should do. I have been lucky enough never to have come across an accident where any first aid was needed. But there has always been the fear in the back of my head that it could happen at any time and I would not know how to give appropriate help. I hope my luck continues, but if I do come across an accident at least now I feel I could be of some use.

I would recommend the first aid course to anyone and everyone, it might be me that has the accident and need your help.

In the garden it is nearly time to think about doing some tidying up and killing or stopping the development of those early weeds. Kiwicare produces a comprehensive range of herbicides for the control of weeds in all situations. The NO Weeds range includes selective weedkiller and non-selective weedkillers. The selective weed killers include NO Weeds Turfclean, NO Moss in Lawns and NO Hydrocotyl for selective control of weeds and moss in lawns.
To prevent the growth of new weeds there are the options of NO Weeds Ronstar SG and NO Weeds Longterm liquid which kills weeds and prevents germination of weed seeds for an extended period.

For general soil safe weed control there is NO Weeds Buster and NO Weeds Glyphosate. Buster is a better product in that it is active against a broader range of weed species.

A convict in jail got a letter from his wife:
"I am going to plant lettuce in the back garden. When is the best time to plant them?"
Knowing that the prison guards read all the mail, he replied:
"Darling, whatever you do, DO NOT do any planting in the back garden!"
A week or so later, he received another letter from his wife:
"On Friday the police came with spades and picks, and dug up the whole back garden."
The prisoner wrote another letter:
"Darling, NOW is the best time to plant the lettuce!"
