How to kill allium

uoduxxFebruary 17, 2008

Sorry, but I have a bed of allium that I (stupidly) planted years and years ago. I can not get rid of it. I have dug out bulbs year after year to no avail. I don't even get any flowers anymore, only greenery. Should I just cover the area in plastic for this season and wait for till next season to enjoy it? Or just give up? It's so ugly.

Thank you.

If it's green use Round-up, a none selective and biograde that doesn't effect the soil when it hits it. I wiped out a huge patch of lily of the valley. Use with caution. If the wind blows it anything green is dead. I had over spray that killed my lawn and some near by perennials. I then used a cardboard box open at both ends and tediously sprayed each section. No more lily of the valley. There is also a product called Wipe-Out. It can't grow if it has no sunlight if you go organic. Mulch doesn't work on bulbs unless the green is above ground. Hope that helps.
