Question: 1280-2915
There is a climbing vine in my garden that is overgrowing everything. It has an orange berry in the fall and gets a little woody. How can I get rid of it? Cindy, North Windham, CT

Mort's Answer:
Any herbicide will also kill the shrubs and veggie plants. You best bet is to pull them out at the roots. You will probably find that there are fewer bittersweet vines than you think. There is a product called Vine-X that will systemically oill the entire plant. It comes in a ketch up type squeeze tube with a brush at the end. It has to be discreetly put on the stems near the ground. Otherwise it will kill everything that it touches.
