I have a thriving bed of asparagus. My husband planted some horseradish at one end and I am afraid it will take over my asparagus. Will it? Will roundup kill the horseradish and not hurt my asparagus? annnie

Round Up will kill both plants so the best approach is to dig out the horseradish, roots and all. If it resprouts, dab Round Up on the stubs, which will be transported down to the roots and will kill them off. Just keep the herbicide as far away from your asparagus as possible.
