I have several small individual privet hedges! I would like to be rid of these! Please come dig. Would like flowers or daylilies for exchange, but if not come one and come all and rid me of these shrubs!
I'm afraid the only way to get rid of those things is to cut them down and drop a little strong or undiluted Roundup on the stump -- and do it quickly before the birds scatter the seeds around! If they're really small, just spray the whole thing with Roundup. Good luck!!
