The Q&A Archives: How Best to Get Rid of Jasmine

Question: Pesky me again. You just have the most awesome flowers on the site and I've got so many new ideas. Okay, so have non-flowering jasmine under my oaks. Dappled and indirect sunlight. You've already given me other choices to use instead of this boring green jasmine vine. Now, what's the best way to get rid of it? And IF it's a chemical, would prefer organic, but I'm not sure we could dig it out. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE INFO ABOUT THE SHRUBS GROWING BACK AFTER THE

Answer: Teri,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

Your options are to either dig it out or possibly to mow it to the ground and then cover it with a landscape weed block fabric which would then be covered by mulch. You can plant through the fabric later on if you like and it should do a pretty good job of shading out an killing the jasmine as it is trying to regrow. I am not aware of any natural product that would move into the plant and kill the entire plant, roots and all.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
