    Help! It looks like the neighbors had some topsoil installed that had the little
    dears & they've taken over big time. There is a couple of hydrangea we could
    have moved & pick the stolens out, the rest of the plantings are replaceable.
    When, what? Should a bamboo-type barrier be installed on the fence line?
    Thanks, M:cry:

    Morning glories are very fast growing annual vines, you will have to selectively pull, spray, dig and pray to control them for the rest of this season - but they will die in the winter. Next year you will need to apply a pre-emergent in the early spring, then keep a 'no mans land' sprayed with round up between you and the source. Joe

    You are in Luck Mike,

    There is a chemical usually used for crabgrass, called Drive--it works great on wild morning glory, otherwise known as bindweed. And you can spray it right over the top of most bushes and flowers. Read the label carefully. Let us know how it goes. Worked well for me.
    Use a clean sprayer--do not add any other weed killer.
