Different types of garden weeds.

There are three main types of garden weeds: annual weeds, biennial weeds and perennial weeds. Biennial and perennial weeds tend to live for a long time and are tougher than annual weeds. They have strong, deep roots from which new plants sprout every year, this makes them near impossible to eliminate without using a deep root weed killer to kill off the roots. By contrast, annual weeds have a much shorter life cycle and regenerate by spreading their seeds in the surrounding area. To properly eradicate these weeds it is fundamental that weed killer is used before they spread their seeds, as a few weeds could rapidly multiply into an invasive population which would take a lot more work to destroy!

It’s always good practice to only mix up what you need for that treatment, but you can retain the unused solution for up to a week, since a gradual loss of activity will occur. Make sure that you store any weedkiller safely away from the reach of children and pets.
