advice on controlling rampant Star Jasmine
I am wondering if anyone has advice on how to get rid of my out of control Star Jasmine. I have browsed the forums and have read about 20% concentrated vinegar but I have doubts that it would take care of my problem. The Star Jasmine has run rampant in my backyard (a narrow but long shaded area).
I'm talking dense, very strong, sometimes multiple layers of vines across a 10 foor by 4 foot area. The massive rain we have had this spring is making it worse.
I dont have any plants in this area that need to live, the only other thing that grows there is chinaberry and spanish needles, (which I have plenty of in the front yard and are a nuisance themselves!).
If anyone has any useful suggestions please do tell. I have tried using a hard rake and manually ripping out the jasmine but it literally breaks the rake, and my weed whacker helps but only for a little while. THANKS!
