    If the stems are hollow, either inject concentrated Roundup into the stems or cut a main stem two to three inches above the ground and fill the hollow an inch to most of the way with Roundup. If the stems are solid, cut as mentioned and then -- with a drill or other implement -- drill a hole two or three inches deep and fill an inch to most of the way. *NOTE: This is best done during warm (temps above 70F generally speaking), sunny, drier weather as this is when the plants will be in more active growth and thus will have a greater tendency to absorb the herbicide.

    The following chapter and when I say chapter , more a encyc in itself, details the invasive plants subject. RBGKew Visual Reference 'plant' - endorsed by Botanic Gardens Conseravation International. PM me for isbn and author if you wish. It follows the orchid and bromeliad and carnivorus section - is there no end to temptation.? Poor Florida! hit by quite a large assortment of organisms all colours shapes and sizes any many more. On a satirical note I wish my Hedychium Garneranium had agressive and dominant rhizomes. I am contemplating dynamite as a subtle prompt to grow baby Grow! but ofcourse the south pacific islands have a different more serious issue with it and they didnt pay £4.99 for a rhizome.

    Shockingly! I also declare full involvement at sometime in the past in culturing some of these chlorophyll nightmares and failed at times.

    Your longtime invasion though Martha hasnt made it yet into the charts internationally unless theyve messed with the latin names.

    But many plants with the notorious habit of propagating and reproducing by miniscule severed fragments like knotweed etc soon fill chapter of their own.

    Alliaria petiolata is the latin for garlic mustard.

    Paul - now you've given me yet another way to spend hours obsessing in the garden with my power drill and veternary syringe! I have great fun using it on all the little Norway maple tree stumps and then using a vinegar/salt mixture on them. - martha
