My front garden is covered in soursobs from all the rain that we've had. They are growing in the mulch in amongst an established garden. I would spray them however they are caught up in an throughout established plants and bushes. What is the best way to tackle this - besides paying a fortune for a gardener? Would you attempt to spray or use good old fashioned hard labour? Ugh.

If you do use spray, use an empty toilet roll holder.  Brilliant for that job.

Couple of layers of weed mat? Lets the rain through but will stop the soursops. They are tough buggers though, you’ll have to leave the weed matting there for a long time!

If was me, i'd just pull them out.  Sour sobs have pretty small root balls so come out very easily.
