Hi all, 

I need some help identifying a plant and working out the best way to get rid of it. 

It is coming over a low wall in our garden from a yard we back onto to. It is almost vine like and wraps it self around other plants. It is so dense that when we have tried to chop it back we have found the lower layers are dense with dead leaves.

anyone tell me what it is and the easiest way to get rid of it.



  • Hi @en0u1209DgKLpAwg  and welcome to the forum 😊 if you’ve posted a photo it’s not appeared ... that could be because it’s too large. Reducing the size of a photo usually works

    My thoughts exactly @Hostafan1  

    How to get rid of it?  Cut it down as far as possible and dig out the roots.  You can then pour boiling water (or the hot water from the corned beef) into the rest of the roots.  Worth a try.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

  • Thank you. It’s never had any flowers so I was unsure if it was a honey suckle. We are no where near finding the roots yet. I think they are over in the field behind our garden. We are going to chop a bit each day and see how far we can get. It was all wrapped around my neighbours Buddleia. 
  • The roots are not on your ground. So you will not be able to kill the root.
    They are on the other side of the boundary wall and fence.
    Honeysuckles normally have flowers that have a wonderful scent.
    Why not wait and see.
    Maybe you will love it.
