has anybody tank mixed dockstar and thistlex, have used dockstar on its own and abit dissapointed .
also has anybody tryed headland polo on docks ?
Polo will only knock docks back to ground level but they'll come back later in the year. Would suggest it's pointless mixing the two and Doxstar at full rate at the right time should give you the result you want. I am using Thurst & Minstrel (mix) this spring as had good results last year.

I used headland polo last year on docs, killed them very effectively, it’ll be interesting to see how many come back. It’s hard on the clover, but didn’t kill it completely

Same as Minstrel that I used , I've used expensive Dockstar in same field and no better if as good for 3 times the cost
I've been told I can mix Minstrel with Thissle X to do thistles as well , but you can't mix Dockstar and Thistle ex

why can’t you mix doxstar and thistlex?
That’s what pas - tor is !

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
