Does anyone know what "spirit of salts" is? Someone from New Zealand wrote in and she wanted to know if they would get rid of tree stumps. She never got an answer and I can't email her to find out.
Hardiness Zone: 9a
By metroplex from Houston, TX
It is hydrochloric acid
If this is the person you were referring to you can click her name and try and send her a message that way:
I dont know what ligustrums are or if you are wanting to get rid of their plants or their stumps but you might check this:
If you lived in New Zealand the government would come and take care of it for you as it is a banned plant.
Are you allergic to it or are they just taking over? good luck to you.
I wonder if it is a Liquid or something like real salt that you can just spread around the bottom of the tree.
I'm too chicken to use it, even on my hellish ligustrums. Which everyone I know is allergic to, to some degree.
They are everywhere in Houston because nothing can kill them. Their flowers smell sickeningly sweet and yellow pollen is everywhere when they bloom. Plus, they're ugly. But very sturdy. So many plants and trees froze this winter, but they're in their full glory.
We spend a small fortune getting rid of some when we put up our fence, but the additional ones I want to get rid of are about double.
We had to get a professionall in to pull them out, so I thought maybe someone might have a trick of killing them with some kind of concoction.
I'm still open to suggestions. Thanks!
