Vinca to get rid of it...

jeannette10August 3, 2005


This is my first post on the Gardenweb.

I am doing some relandscaping in my backyard and I want to get rid of the vinca minor ground cover as soon as possible.

Is there a product I can use to kill it? I understand it's very invasive and I want to replace the vinca minor with something else. We are in Northern California, zone 9.

Thank you

Round-up works. It may take a couple of applications to do it completely.

For best results- mow or weed wack vinca. Water well for a week or so, getting it going well. Then spray, between 65-85 degrees. It takes longer to work if colder or hotter than that. I find that a dollop or a few drops of regular dish soap helps the Round-up spread/stick to glossy leaves.
