I wouldn't use it. It will kill a few easy weeds I'm sure. along with countless invertebrates in the soil

Vinegar as a weedkiller

Since this thread is about killing plants with vinegar that seems an odd question.

Diseased Sorbus - treatable?

Posted: 03/08/2017 at 15:18

this is another thread about the same cultivar, ?same problem. 

The top of your tree is dead shinygirl and I wonder if the growth at the base is from the root-stock which is the species Sorbus aucuparia by the look of it.

You won't get a decent Sorbus 'Autumn Spire' tree from what you have there. Rootstock or no, once a tree has lost its tree shape you don't get it back.

Ceanothus TREE!

Concha is a Ceaonthus cultivar.

Hard to find precise answers to some things, especially on a forum where different people will have tried different things. Plants don't read the books so we all try what we think will work, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.

You won't find a guarantee of success. You may find someone who will tell you exactly what to do because it worked for them (or in some cases because they read it on a website) but it's no guarantee it will work for you. 

Sometimes you just have to get out the saw and hope for the best

See original post

 You don't need me, Josie can do it. 

I think 'Bergamo' is a hybrid, M. citriodora is probably one of the parents. This looks more like the species than the hybrid

stump paint is out now. Breathing is in.

They have a reputation for not being long-lived.  Cut it as you'd like it to be, but be prepared for a death

Personally I'd either leave it alone or remove it.

if you're going to do it, sow them fresh, don't store them
