How do i kill Wild Blackberry bushes without using weedkiller?
I have Blackberry bushes taking over my backyard! I try to pull them up and my hands become shredded, even with 3 pairs of leather, rubber and knit gloves on at the same time. I try to dig it up and it grows back (quickly). I hate using store bought weed killer but would be open to something homemade and natural!

Hi Jessica. I'm Cindy. Salt will kill anything. Sprinkle salt on the soil where the plant ends. Then gently pour warm water on top of the salt. The water will help the roots receive the salt faster. If you gently pour the water, the salt will stay put. Be careful with the salt. It will kill anything it touches. Best of luck to you.
Haven’t tried this on blackberries, yet but it works on all other plants. Not only the weeds but ones I don’t want to kill..
1/2 cup salt
1 cup vinegar
a squirt of dishwashing liquid
Fill bottle with water
if you have a lot of blackberries and are using a spray canister, triple the vinegar and salt with the additional water.
In the past I have done this every week until I see they are dieing. I know it works because I’ve done it. Good luck!
Please disregard the part about not having done this on blackberries because I have.
Thank you! I can't wait to try this!
They are so darn invasive, every year I see them in big box stores and many unsuspecting folk have no idea they are so invasive-both the wild ones and tame.
It is near impossible to pull them our, runners go everywhere. What we have resorted to is continually mowing them down.
