when we first moved to our house I spent a very long time trying to remove ivy from our front garden. I thought I had nailed it with damaging the roots adding bleach and general digging away... its back with vengance....HEEEEEEEEEELLPPPPP

you have to use something like sbk root killer. Or spray the foliage with glycophosphate and repeat in about 2 weeks.

Hi Mookins we used 'root out' on the stumps but David has just told me it is now banned... you could try injecting the stumps with roundup, I did this with something growing through from a neighbours garden and it worked :-)
