    Funny that got mentioned. The expert on the Radio today Neal Sperry was trying to help a guy fighting a similar sounding plant called Wax Myrtle. Its supposedly notorious for growing new bushes form the roots. Root Bloomers maybe? Seems to spread and cluster up like Bamboo. Anyway he recommend covering it up with black light blocking mats too. He didnt mention the glysophate. He maybe forgot that part. He likes chemicals unlike Dr. Dirt.

    About the plastic coverage.
    Some people use it in here to help eradicate soil diseases and weeds in greenhouses (mostly those who go organic).
    They remove as much of leftovers from the last crop, such as leaves and roots. Then they cover the soil with clear plastic, (the intention here is to let UV light pass), seal it very well and close the greenhouse shut for about 2 months, usually december and january, the hottest months in here. It becomes very hot and dry inside the greenhouses and during this time, pretty much any bacteria, fungi and seeds/roots left in soil dies and they start planting again.
    It actually works quite well.

    Yesterday was dry so i mixed up a fresh batch of roundup with some tryclopyr mixed in. The Agway guy claims this is the holy grail of vine killers. So we shall see and I’ll report the results.

    Like Chiefster said if others are wondering the trade name you would be looking for would be Crossbow. A bit of Glyphosate and some crop oil would go along ways with it. Works really good.
