Powerful Weed Killer

Hi people

I have just cleared my back garden which was over grown with blakberry busshes.

I simply cleared them at ground lever with a spade etc.

The roots are so deep that i cannot remmove them entirely.

What is the strongest weed killer that i can use to detsry the roots. I wont be planting anything at until next year.

Many thanks

    The back of my garden is a real fecking mess. Each year I clear it but the damn weeds and brambles etc just return back in force. I have used just about every weed killer B & Poo do and none of it works. A mate reckoned Diesel works best but leaves the ground unsuitable for planting anything for about 10 years. I plan on decking the back of the garden so dont care if nothing grows there ever again but the missus wont have it.

    Never under-estimate the predictability of stupidity.

    2 things you can do, Keep knocking the green shoots back every time they sprout eventually without photosynthesis the roots will die (this is only if the plants roots are in your garden only) the other way is break fluid or petrol, This will kill everything but you will need to refertalize your garden with somthing like Horse Manure when you are ready to set it.
    The Blackberry bushes roots are used to spread the plant, if it's an infestation from another garden you need to cut and clean out the root spurs in order to get rid of them.

    Some people are born great
    Others have greatness thrust upon them

    I find My greatness comes in a tub of Dianabol.

    Glyphosate which is the chemical in Roundup is the stuff you need.
    You should really have sprayed while you still had bushy plants.
    After spraying, the plant absorbs the chemical and transports it down the root system.
    It's the most powerful way of killing off strong growing plants.

    Here's a link to a professional grade product (follow the safety instructions, it pretty toxic)

    Spray some bleach on them. We have to use bleach to kill the mold on houses before we paint them and have to spray down all the plants and **** around the house with the hose after because the bleach kills them.

    Get down to the roots then soak them in creosote, they'll be gone within a few weeks, if you plan not to grow nothing you'll be ok with creosote.
