Heresy . . . but I need help!
Now I realize that asking my question on this forum is like promoting abortion in a Catholic church, but I do need help in ridding myself of a gift bamboo that became a little shop of horrors. In spite of barriers, my bamboo leapt over tall fences in a single jump, and we were forced to remove it - we thought - after one year.
It reappeared . . . my garden, neighbor's garden, etc. etc. How can I get rid of it? Will spraying vegetation killer on the leaves work? Should I pull out each sprout and spray the underground runners? Sell the cottage? Any advice will be appreciated.
