snowberry bush i need some help,  had snowberry bush as a hedge in front garden  neighbour took it out several years ago to put up a fence, my side is a boarder that i have dug over and re planted but the snowberry keeps coming up.  how do i get rid of it?  or if i cant how do i make it back into a hedge, ie, when to cut it and is there something i could grow with it so its not so bare in the winter, thanks

It's persistent and it suckers.Let it go for a bit and give it the glyphosate treatment if you don't want it. It's OK as part of a wildish hedge/windbreak but it's not hedging material

thanks  Nutcutlet don't think I can use that as I have a tree in the border and some shrubs guess it will kill them too , would a paint on the leaf type weed killer be any good?

You can paint glyphosate onto the leaves.

It will only kill what you paint/spray it on

try round up i use it all the time as its part of my job and feel it does a great job they now do a roll on tube has a strong type weedkiller inside well worth a shot.. or get a cereal box cut the top and bottom out and place the box over the plant u wish to kill and spray it that way reduces chances of hurting anything near by and reduces drift hope this helps
