I have 3 huge problem areas. A Lilac, 3 Forsythias, and a million buddleas. I hate them, I loathe them. I have tried killing them over and over again and like something out of Edgar Allan Poe, they will not die! The lilac suckers have invaded my flower beds and are even coming up through my pond, the forsythia is insisting on returning bigger and uglier every year and one of them has taken over my rockery, as for the buddlea, they're everywhere!!!! I have recently employed a man to empty, yes, empty my flower beds which are inbetween some retaining walls (See picture). I thought, if I could put in some root killer and then fill it back up with earth, I could start again. But how can I stop it coming back? how can I kill all these horrible trees and rid myself of their nasty suckers forever!!!!!?
