    The best way to kill the root system is spray the leaves with glyphosate, and then leave the plant to die over the course of a few weeks - but you need a decent amount of leaf surface for it to work well. Would be interested to know what plant it is, do you have any more details / pics?

  • Hi there, When there is top growth I put on a rubber glove and gently cover the leaves in roundup gel. I then cover the head with a plastic bag.  If you do not have growth it won't be long before you will have,  especially when you don't want it

    good luck
