Thanks everyone .  Exactly the kind of information I'd hoped for.  I'm 
feeling quite confident about using it as I'd planned--Small spray bottle. 
,, on a windless or low drift day,  confined to the bulb areas.. And the 
paint brush idea will work wonders on the endless European buckthorn that 
keeps turning up wherever it can find a foothold. Kind regards.
