Hi Anne,

Fishbone fern is very difficult to eradicate and can take some time to completely remove it from the garden. Apply Zero Glyphosate 490 with a wetting agent (or a few drops of dishwashing liquid) to the foliage. Once these plants have died then reapply to any newly emerging fronds. It may take a few years of regular treatment to completely remove this weed.
