Re: QUESTION: Wild Grape Vines

I also had wild grape vines that just wouldn't die. After trying chem treatments, I successfully killed them off with garbage bags. I cut each back to ground level, dug around the vine to about 8 -12 in deep, clipped roots off from main stem, then wrapped the whole mess tightly in a black plastic garbage bag, kind of swirling it around the stem to cover with several layers. I buried it, and set a rock on top so I didn't accidently plant something there. They did not resprout. In 2 or 3 years, I removed the rocks, dug and removed the black plastic. The vines were totally decomposed.
