I'd like to say I'm big and strong!! I might have a go - maybe when the weather cools down a bit because I think I've got about a dozen to get rid of!

Thank you all very much for the replies.

I've got just a few inches of stump above the ground. I'd like to plant something else there eventually but am also toying with the idea of a low fence - I'm not one of life's little gardeners and anything that doesn't need attention (except for a slap of creosote every so often) really appeals to me! In the meantime, I've got montbretia (spelling?) to stop the edge of the garden looking too bare.

All in all, it looks as though I have a year or so to decide what to do though.

Thanks again for the help.

Nora

I've just had my laylandii hedge cut down to ground level as it was almost dead. The people who cut it down for me told me to get some root killer from B&Q/garden centre etc.

When I went to the garden centre yesterday they told me that, once a laylandii is cut down, it will die off naturally and I don't need to put anything on the stumps to kill them.

Is this correct? Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks.
