Answer: Hi Helen,

Wisteria is a particularly strong rooted climber and can be difficult to kill, depending upon the size of the root system. I should imagine it would be growing strongly at the moment. It would be best to remove as much of the foliage as you can and then treat the stump with a herbicide such as Zero Glyphosate Weedspray 490. Cut the stump as close to the ground as you possibly can and then coat the cut surface immediately with the spray of Glyphosate. Follow the directions on the label for dilution rate. (103ml per 1 litre of water)
