Garden border

James Feeley asked 10 years ago

I have an 1/2 acre garden with a thornbush border but I have problems getting rid of weeds around the trees. I have used weedkiller and have got rid of some weeds but it grows back again.

It is possible to use Roundup around the base of a hedge, but the Roundup must onto get onto the stems, leaves or branches as it will cause die-back.

Otherwise, it must be done by hand.

And it is important to remove weeds and grass for good growth and to prevent the base of a hedge becoming shaded out and bare.
