The Q&A Archives: what to use to kill morning glories?

Question: I have morning glories spreading like crazy and I need to get them stopped and rid my flower beds of them all together. I did not plant then, just showed up. We want to plant other things.

Answer: Wild morning glory, or field bindweed, are very difficult to control even with repeated pulling. You might try applications of an herbicide containing glyphosate. Apply according to the label instructions, and plan on repeat applications. Glyphosate is a vegetation killer so keep it away from the plants you want to grow - just spot treat the weedy growth. Good luck with the fight!
