Hampshire, United Kingdom
Ok folks, I spent a couple of hours last night wrestling with brambles. I think they are brambles! On a few I was able to get to the root and dig the whole thing out, but they have grown right throw a holly hedge we have at the front and it reminds me a bit like cancer, it just gets everywhere. Do I have to get to each root to rid my front garden and holly bush of them completely? Any hints or tips? It was tiring and I couldn't physically get to some of the roots. Very annoying things. Plus my material gloves didn't help - I think I need some rubber type ones to stop the thorns coming through the material when I handle them. All help welcome! Thank you!!!
