Sorted out my grans rather neglected garden and a neighbours backdoor is rather infested with brambles. THerefore its speading though the metal fence into ours, is their effective way of killing this? Weedkillers semes to do nout but i suspect thats due to the size of it!

I herd diesal works can anyone comfirm this?

thanks

Joe

I had the same problem, I used a load of weed killers. But I have heard salt water works and also Vinegar but it must be concentrated over 10-15%, so maybe you could add some extra lemon juice to get the mix up.

I have tried the salt water, It did seem to work but I can not be sure as I went and stuck a load of weedkiller over it after a week. I am getting there slowly but am also looking for a cheaper way to do all this.

I think you'd need to use a deep root killer, from what I've briefly read this seems to be the best way.

Deep Root Killer

Baaheeduk do you mix this with water or is it a powder mate, can't see how to use it on that site

Seems cheap too compared to some of the stuff I have seen

Not sure to be honest mate! See a thread on another forum and apparently it's the only thing that worked for this fella. Best to pop along to B&Q to read the box, they're bound to sell it :)

Don't pour diseal on there, you will **** up ground water.

Root killer can work but to be honest I have blackberry growning from next door and everyone I have spoken to says unless they kill their plant it will keep growing threw.

Maybe you could chuck some over the fence when no-ones looking

I would say looking at the link to the Deep Root Killer that to kill the weed above and below ground it will have to be diluted in water.

I have horsetail in my garden dug it up turned the soil over planted spuds in the soil and the bugger still coming up, think i will have to try some of this and see what happens.
