How to nuke agapantha?

Hello All 

After some advice on what is the best way to get rid of Agapantha. Whipper Snipper wont make much of a dent. So what gardening tool can slash this? Also to get rid of the roots what sort of chemical is ideal with out poisoining the soil?

 

Thanks and hope the topic is relevant for this forum admin.

Re: How to Nuke Agapantha

Hi @PN,

 

I'd suggest cutting it all back with hedge shears and digging out the roots with a shovel. You can use the Yates Zero Weeding Herbicide Applicator Brush to kill anything you can't dig out. It's convenient as you can fill it with Yates 1L 490g/L Zero Weed Killer Super Concentrate and paint it on the plant. This will stop it from penetrating the soil.

 

If you can manage to dig out the whole plant, you might find someone who would be interested in taking them for their own garden.
