How can I get rid of brambles growing up from the base of mature shrubs



Oh poor you try digging them out or and keep pulling them out. How old are the shrubs if under 2 years you might be able to dig it all up and replant the shrubs in the autumn?

They are well matured shubs and densly planted which is causing the problem. I wondered if putting weed-killer on the leaves would do the job?

If you dont contaminate your shrubs? Try painting the leaves and putting them in plastic bag until dry?
