in Warwick, Perth Western Australia
Nature of problem:
Dracaena marginata (?) plants. I put them in years ago and have cut them back many times. They are now getting rather large and I would like to get rid of them. I have tried cutting them back to the stump and spraying new growth with Glyphosate. But regardless of my efforts, very robust shoots keep appearing. Their roots below ground level are very large and impossible to dig out. Any suggestions?

Hi Di, What if you put an ad up locally (maybe at the local shops) for work for an unemployed labourer to remove it @ $25 per hour. I have done it, I found it not too difficult. Don – 2 hours max. Maybe you can find a bit extra work too for him/her?
