Hi everyone!
I'm having a problem in our garden namely our neighbours bramble bush / invasion. I cut some back today near the fence but I noticed it growing against my greenhouse and underneath the tiles!!! What can I do and how do I kill the brambles on our side?
Thanks

Cut the brambles to the ground and apply a product with Triclopyr as the active ingredient on the cut portion of the stump that is sticking out of the ground. It only takes a few drops. It is absorbed down into the roots and kills it.

You could cut it right back, dig it out to the edge of your garden, and put a physical barrier in place, like a sheet of acrylic, as the spreader roots don't go down very deep (even if the plant roots do).
Or dig a trench 8" deep where the roots come in, and you'll be able to spot them as they invade.
Your neighbour may not be too keen on you killing their brambles.
