Brambles & roses

Hi,

I have some rather well established brambles growing in amongst my climbing roses.  Is there a weedkiller which is effective against the brambles but which won't harm the roses?  (Digging up the brambles is not an option as there are too many & I am disabled.)

    I don't think that there is such a selective weedkiller on the market. I think the answer lies in hired help.image

    I've had some success using SBK targeted at brambles growing through some established azaleas - see thread copied below for suggestions:

    We did not inherit the earth from our grandparents.  We’re borrowing it from our children.

    Better to start a new thread where your question will be seen by more people.image
