I have a Hawthorn and two crabapples that are getting those little
growths that look like small limbs growing out of the roots. Putting
down the plastic liner (or whatever it is made out of) doesn't work. I
would like to use something that would kill the suckers while obviously
leaving the tree intact. Any suggestions?
Thanks. Actually that hasn't worked either, especially in the beds.
Can't get the lawnmower up there, even then I mow high enough that it
doesn't help all that much.
Any chemical suggestions or would the trees be too fragile?
don't know about trees, but the advice for roses is to not just cut
the sucker, but dig down and try and break it off where it connects
to the root so the "eye" (i'm thinking potato) or whatever they call
the growing point on the root is removed. of course, it will just
develop another one, but that takes longer.
