There was a time not too long ago when the prevailing wisdom of new allotment holders was to kill all vegetation on a plot as they ready for new plantings. While certainly effective and efficient, this clinic has fallen from favor since it also kills off potentially useful insects and micro-organisms on your plot's soil.
New allotment holders are now encouraged to be a lot more selective in their weed killing practices. As there is such a wide variety of weed killing products readily available and few of them are harmful to consumers like Roundup.

Systemic weed killers
Also known as translocated weed killers, this kind of weed killer is comparable to putting off a nuclear bomb on your undesirable plants. Systemic weed killers work like this:
1. Spray the undesirable plant foliage,
2. The plant's leaves absorb the compounds and transfer the compounds all the way to its origins,
3. The plant dies entirely from leaf-tip to root. Any chemical that gets on neighboring plants will destroy those plants, also, so be careful about spillage onto other plants.
