RE: round-up at base of boo

Bamboo seems pretty resistant to Roundup, but I always hate to see someone adding more man-made chemicals to the soil. Any reason hand weeding won't work? If it were me, I'd weed it and lay down a couple of inches of mulch and/or some weed barrier to solve the problem permanently.

Sounds like a good idea. thanks Kidzu.
