Q.How do I kill wild hardy cyclamen?

Zone 97055 | Anonymous added on April 29, 2020 | Answered

My wonderful wild cyclamen has stayed within bounds for twenty years – but in the last 3-4 years it is spreading wildly. I tried digging up the tubers, but after filling MANY five gallon buckets, I realize that I can’t keep up with it. What is the best way to kill it?

Since you have attempted to dig it up to no avail, your next step could be using a non-selective herbicide containing glyphosate. It should kill it down to the tubers.
