Q.Quince Root

Anonymous added on April 11, 2014 | Answered

We removed quince and oleander from the backyard and today started to plant Pink Bower vine in their place. One hole has a red/white apparently healthy root from a Quince. Should I leave the root alone, hoping no more quince will come back, or should I try to remove the root?

If you have a few days, I would paint the root with Round-up and leave the hole empty for at least a week (to allow the herbicide to dissipate) to help kill off the old root just to be sure. If you do not have that much time, it should be fine to leave it. If it does start to regrow, remove the suckers and paint the cuts where you cut the suckers off with Round-up.
