A few seasons ago I took some baby raspberry plants that were spreading too far into the vegetable beds and replanted them under our crab Apple tree. I didn't expect them to take...but they did.
Trouble is we have a problem with poison ivy in that area. It hasn't sprung up yet this season..but I'm sure it will. The plants are probably ready to fruit this year...and I figure they won't be safe to eat. We have plenty of berries in another area so we don't have to eat them.
But our yard has become sort of a community garden with lots of neighbors picking things withoutu us around. We don't mind this usually..it's a very friendly neighborhood. But I'd hate for one of them to not see the poison ivy and have their throat swell from ingesting berries grown so close to it! Is there any way to safely eradicate the poison ivy so I don't hurt anyone? I'd like to keep the berry plants if possible.
