Q.Getting rid of yucca plants

Zone 60202 | Anonymous added on August 12, 2018 | Answered

Hi. Just read your article on getting rid of unwanted yucca plants, which advises using RoundUp. I’d really like to avoid that if possible. Is it possible to use boiling water instead? For example, if I dig up a plant, then pour a large pot of boiling water into the hole, is it possible that might do it? Thanks.

Boiling water can be effective in some weeds, but it is not likely to have much effect on the Yucca roots.
