I have just cut down a blackthorn type hedge to ground level . when is the best time to paint the stumps with stump killer . ? straight away , or when the stumps start to sprout ?



I would think now would be fine as the poison soaks into the stump.....does it not tell you in the instructions?

I'd do it know too. and then re-treat if it sprouts at all.

How different all our gardens are - I'm trying to grow a blackthorn/hawthorn hedge.

Drill holes in the blackthorn stumps, pour in SBK neat and plug with putty to avoid spillage. This will penetrate the roots before they start to grow again.
