Hi all...does anyone know an 'easy' method of getting rid of bamboo roots..have cut down the bamboo and poisoned off but am left with very solid roots..tried digging them up but they are all attached to each other and I can't even get a spade under them.



I don't think there is an easy way of getting rid of a Bamboo, silly me I have 4 of them, worst plant I ever got and I too am trying to get rid of mine, I've been toying with the idea of getting a mini digger in thats if it will go down our side way, hope you find a solution to get rid of yours, Good Luck & Hope someone can hep you.

You could try spraying the leaves with a glyphosate weed killer. They would then take a long time to rot down.

thanks guys...I usually saw as close to the ground as I can and put straight '360' down the faster and more effectively than just spraying the leaves...I've decided to build 3 rockeries around and over what I can't get out the ground..:-)
