I have a bramble problem
We have two established deciduous azaleas, which have lovely scented flowers in spring and great autumn leaves. They are probably about 20 years old, and have spread over a grassy area.
the problem is that they have brambles growing through them - so much so that this year you can hardly see their autumn colour for the dreaded bramble leaves growing through.
each year I spend the winter ripping out as much as I can, but there is no room to get in there and dig out the roots, and each year they come back stronger than last. I think I am going to have to resort to weedkiller, but don't want to damage/kill the azaleas in the process.
Any ideas on what I should do???
