I have 2 Buddleia growing out of back yard wall, I have cut them down and sprayed them with a shrub killer all to no effect they are still growing I'm desperate now I need to know an effective solution to kill them off because I'm worried about the damage to the wall which is adjoining next door and I would be resposible for any damage done. Can anyone please help me.



i believe there is a poison you can spray or inject directly into the plant . dcrbob or bamboo are true plantsmen they will know for sure .
