How To Keep Maple Tree Sprouts From Taking Over English Vine Ground Cover

Question From: Princeton, New Jersey, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, English vine which we used as ground cover under the maple tree is dying as we see the maple tree sprouts over taking the English vine. How can we control the maple sprouts from overtaking th English vines.

A: Pull the sprouts off the base of the tree when they are small in spring,.. You can buy a product from Monterey called Sucker Stopper that will also help control them. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
