How do I stop the shoots growing from this lilac stump?
Isle of Wight, United Kingdom
I have this lilac stump in the back of my border, the other half of the lilac is in a neighbours garden and hasn't been chopped down. I can't abide lilac and want to discourage it from growing. Is there something I can paint on the stump on my side to stop the shoots growing but without killing the lilac in the neighbours side. I heard tar was used once upon a time, does this work?
