Hi All

Looking for some advise on a suitable weed control spray. I have a griselinia hedge which was well established but had to be cut back to ground level after the harsh winters. Its slowly starting to come back but I need to do some weed control in around it. Any advise on suitable weed killers/sprays that won't damage the hedge?

Thanks in advance.

probably the best advice is to get rid of the griselinia and plant a replacement like Privet, Beech, Laurel, Cotoneaster, Viburnum or Holly.
