We recently bought an old farmhouse and we have a flower bed where several redbud keep coming up. They are very hard to pull out. Can you give me any suggestions. Thank you, LaDonna Morgan

Hand pulling them as soon as you see them is the best approach.

You can also cut them down and 'paint' the exposed cut stem with a herbicide.

Use caution as the herbicide will kill everything that is exposed to.
