I think if you just put the roundup on the morning glory leaves the raspberries won't be affected. You might have to use a paint brush or something but it'd be easier that transplanting.

If I apply to just the morning glory, the raspberries won't be affected. Ok, now in case some does get on the berry plant, would that affect the fruit at all? I mean it would be ok to eat or not?

If it gets on the berry plant it'll die.


I guess if it were me, I'd do both. If you had 2 berry beds producing, you could just eliminate one when something like this happened.

I agree on suppression, not eradication because bindweed and its close relatives are insidiously impossible to kill. It doesn't thrive as well in shade so covering with shade cloth will retard growth BUT not eliminate it. Forget digging as the root system is deep and impossible to eliminate in the soil. A plant that can be dormant for many years and then emerge when conditions become suitable to it's growth is to be feared. Fight on, retreat when you must and live to fight another day because there WILL be another day. It should be called mourning glory.

This window is about 8' wide x 4' long. Oh, my stars!! In what seemed like no time at all, I had a jungle growing in my window. It was wild. You could spot it from outside and I'm 5 stories up. The vines went after the other smaller plants in the window and seemingly choked the life out of them. They crawled up the window, wrapped themselves tightly around the curtain rod and started to journey out across the ceiling towards my light fixture. Seriously - this is a true story. What I had to go through (on a ladder) to free my blinds and curtains was mind-boggling. These guys hang on for dear life. Never, ever again on Morning Glories!
LOL, "Feed me Seymour!"

It might amuse (or enrage) morning glory haters to know that several succulent species native to Africa are highly coveted because of their caudex-forming habit. They are sometimes set up as bonsai. A mature specimen of Ipomoea bolusiana can be worth over $200.
