Two years ago I killed of brambles in my privet hedge with gallop 365 and very strong mix. It work but has damaged the hedge . I thought it had killed it as leave gone etc but the woody branches are alive and the adjacent hedge has some tiny leaves. This has had the same effect on a different hedge which is not privet.
I've watered with grow more and soaked area but no change.
If anyone knows something I can do I'd be great full.

I think that maybe you did kill it. After two years and it has no growth on that one piece, it is not common back.
I would remove that section, trim the neighboring section and plant a couple of new ones to fill in.

Ok thanks. I have cut it back and found the branches alive but leafless?
Thought the new plants might die if there is still traces in surrounding soil or they would lose their leaves.. someone advised watering with Jeys fluid?

I would think that two years after spraying, you are okay to replant. If there was a residual spray, you would still be seeing additional damage occurring.
