The Q&A Archives: Invasive vines

Question: We have an invasive vine that grows & takes over our backyard gardens. This vine has heart-shaped leaves (sorta longated leaves.

We pull it up but it continues to grow back in our flower beds.

It wraps around evrything!!

Do you have any ideas???


Answer: I can't tell from your description whether you're dealing with ivy, kudzu or wild morning glory, but the best control measure is to dig the offending weedy growth out, roots and all. You can try cutting the vines off at ground level whenever they appear and eventually starve out the roots, but you'll have to be diligent about it. I'd opt for digging the problem growth out and getting rid of it once and for all!
