Getting Rid of Morning Glories

Morning Glories are taking over all of my flowers! I've tried pulling them, but they come back fast, and they're choking my roses. Is there anything that will get rid of them without killing my flowers?

I have the same problem. I am just trying to be diligent about pulling out the morning glories as soon as I see a new one popping up. I also will go after the vines with the clippers if they start to climb onto other flowers and plants. I think it will take some time to get rid of them altogether, but hopefully, we will be able to by the end of this growing season! Good luck.

I hate to tell you but I've been trying for 30 years to get them out of my garden and lawn. I've pulled up, cut down, even tried burning.

All to no avail. It's the roots that are the problem, unless you can figure out a way to get them all out. If you find a way PLEASE let us know.

I used to love this stuff and think it was so pretty and charming. I now think it is the most ruthless and insidious of all garden flowers....it will take over and choke out all your other plants. I pull it out every time I see it, which helps, but I would also appreciate a more permanent solution.

They will tear a fence down, if left alone!! My son dug them up, and so far, so good!!

I'm heartsick! I live in a two-family house that the owner is still working on and the front yard is messy and depressing! Yesterday, I planted a few Morning Glory/Moonflower seeds at the foot of the two porch posts on either side of the steps to the porch. This morning, I found the two plastic-wrapped seed packets I'd used for markers along w/ a note telling me they'd "removed" the seeds because vines are not to be grown near a "home".

I'm not OK w/ this but they're the owners so I'll do what I have to do. In defense of growing these two charmers near a "home", I had both Morning Glorys and Moonflowers growing on porch posts in homes that I've owned and never a problem!

Trust me they did you a huge favor. Terrible weeds. They will take over in just one season!
