re: What to use to kill Asian Jasmine - CrawDude
Trichlopyr is pretty effective, with surfactant added, but you would need the high concentration product, not the 8.8% active ingredient product sold at retail garden centers. Crossbow (trichlopyr + glyphosphate combo) is reported to be very good. Glyphosate by itself (“Roundup”) is not very eff...
