Burdock

Asked May 13, 2018, 3:59 PM EDT

Hi- We have an over abundance of burdock growing in our garden. We spent last fall cleaning a lot of it out of the garden. There seems to be even more this year. It is not something that we can take out by hand-roots keep breaking off, back issues, amount and speed in the garden. Our neighbor also has some from her garden growing into ours. Please tell me what is the best toxic weed killer for this plant. Not a great choice but it is taking over our entire garden and we cannot afford to have it re landscaped. Thank you!

Here is a link to our page on common burdock. At the bottom you can click on control options. In the options clicking a number will take you to what to use and how to use the chemical. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/diagnose/weed/broadleaf/basal/cburdock.html
