Help killing morning glory/wild buckwheat
Hi all - this is my first post here!
I just bought a new home in May. The previous owner did not believe in controlling weeds much - definitely no Round Up used in the yard. Doesn't look like she liked to pull very many weeds either. As a result, what I believed was some type of morning glory, but after searching on the internet found it looks more like wild buckwheat (as it has no flowers), taking over my yard! Vines are popping up like mad throughout the grass in yard all by themselves (not climbing up anything like vines usually do). It does climb too - all over my lilac bush, inside my russian sage, up fences...it's throughout my herb garden too. I have just been pulling it out by hand, but my question is - is there any way to really stop this stuff? I sprayed the growth on the fence with some Round Up, but in the long run that doesn't matter; it just comes right back with new growth. Is there any escape?
