I live in the Smokys planting zone 6. I have 6.6 acres with sheep on 1 1/2 acres and a large organic vegetable garden. I have become inundated with horse nettle. I know how difficult they are to get rid of. They spread by berries, roots and leaves. I spot sprayed each plant with super Round-Up in my pasture last year. They died but twice as many have returned and my whole organic garden is INFESTED! Please help! Thanx.
