The glyphosate saga ended well. One of the neighbours asked what I
had done in the garden. I said I had just put down some basic
weedkiller to make a start on tackling the weeds. Another neighbour
said she did not know that had happened to the vegetation in the
garden - it must have been the drought (not noticing that all other
gardens were unaffected).

It needs the plant to be growing so there's a good circulation of
sap. I applied some in the dry weather, and hasn't worked anywhere
near as effectively as it would if there was enough water around
for the plants to be actually growing. It might still operate if
we get rain. It doesn't work by watering in to the soil - soil
deactivates it. It needs to be absorbed by the plant above ground,
and carried to the roots in the sap. Most preparations have
detergents in them so it is absorbed through the leaves.
