A useful [but somewhat tedious] way to kill a persistent plant without risk of contaminating the soil is to carefully paint the growing tips with diesel oil. I've used this method to kill Brazilian pepper stumps when nothing else seemed to work or was deemed too dangerous to try.

I have come to the conclusion that Wisteria is Satan's Plant. Now I hate it as much as I hate squirrels. I have purchased the Devil's Garden. Sigh. When I would much rather be tending other wonderful plants, I am battling the 9 million wisteria shoots that surface every 5 minutes. These vines are old, and huge and no matter how much you cut them they sprout again, which I knew
they would, but it's still infuriating.

What to do? Cut them and start spraying the new growth with Round- Up? I've
got to get some of this under control. It's making me crazy.
