Poplar suckers

Iris Doherty asked 6 years ago

We cut down a large variegated Poplar a few months ago as it was rather too close to an old barn. There are lots of suckers rising from the roots which are near the surface and I was wondering how we can get rid of these.

Cut the suckers close to the ground and dap each one with some undiluted Roundup with a small paintbrush. Repeat if necessary in summer.
