Pas­sion­fruit root­stock has taken over my gar­den, smoth­er­ing plants. I’ve tried spray­ing with glyphosate and dig­ging it up to no avail. Any sug­ges­tions?

Ali­son Cook, SA Ex­ces­sive suck­er­ing from the root­stock of grafted pas­sion­fruit is an all-too-com­mon night­mare; it can con­tinue for years. You need to keep spray­ing it or smoth­er­ing with thick lay­ers of news­pa­per un­der mulch when­ever it ap­pears. Dig­ging will tend to make it worse. Look for seedling-grown rather than grafted plants next time.
