Q.Getting rid of strawberry vines

Zone Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437 | Anonymous added on August 28, 2020 | Answered

How can I kill off wild strawberry vines growing in my vinca ground cover. I need to address before they choke out the vinca. Is there an herbicide that will kill the strawberry vines and not the vinca?

There are herbicides you can use on the lawn, but I don't know of one that you can use among ornamentals.

Hand pulling and hoeing can be effective over time, but it is hard to pull out all the runners at once. You may want to try "painting" on an herbicide containing glyphosate. That will take longer than just spraying, but may be more effective than hand pulling.
