Q.Getting rid of new guinea impatiens

Zone Te Puke, Bay of Plenty | Nanette Miller added on November 30, 2017 | Answered

The new guinea impatiens have taken over in our large shrubbery. They were there when we bought the property. A few years ago I pulled a lot of it out but it is worse than ever again, smothering other plants that I had planted. It is hard to dispose of when you pull it out. Is there something that will kill it where it is?

Yes, boiling water will kill almost anything that it comes into contact with. It may take several applications, but it will solve your problem.
