How to deal with morning glory

I’ve come across an easy and safe way to deal with morning glory – that evil  vine broad leafed white flower invader that chokes everything.

Get a 2 gallon sprayer from the pesticide/weed area of your local garden centre.

set it up according to the instructions and in the bottle put:

1 cup table salt

and fill to the max with pickling (7% acid) or regular (5% acid) clear vinegar.

spray the leaves liberally, but take care not to get any on other plants.

the next day, the leaves will be brown and shrivelled!

no nasty chemicals, no safety gear needed

I was impressed that it worked faster than roundup.

Burned Glory

you cna see what a bad problem we have – and a light spray has caused it to burn and turn brown!

we’ll be appying the higher acid one and giving more reports – the lighter investation in the front yard totally shrivelled – so don’t be shy about pouring on the vingegar

here you can see the morning glory really burnt by the vinegar and salt
