Lately with the cold weather I have been clearing some fence line and in the process cutting out quite a bit of rose by hand. Anyway in past years I have cut this stff out at different times of the year and have noticed that some make no effort to regrow. Does anyone know what time of years is best to cut this stuff with better chances of it not regrowing. My methods are by hand, pulling out with tractor and chain or with the bushog. So far I have resisted throwing the chemicals to it.

This rose your writing about, is this that suposed hedge row plant imported from England. If so I faught that nuscience for years. Alomost got it under control. While haying should I see a sprig in the grass,, climb down with the lopping shears I carry just fo this purpose and cut it of below grade. 90% of the time it doesn't come back.
Right behind that suposed hedge row rose, we got this Russian Velvet imported for windbreaks. Ha ha. I grows and spreads everywhere with the exception of doing it in the windrow.
Here are two plants not much good for nothing. Must be climate and atmosphere.
I hear there's more, but these to are our nusceinces.

I have a guide to gardening by the moon. It says to destroy weeds, kill brush and trees in the barren signs, Gemini, Leo or Virgo, especially if the moon is in the last quarter. I have never tried this myself, but this may explain why it works at some times of the year and not others.

It repeats that by saying: "Destroy unwanted bushes and weeds in Leo, which is a fire sign. Also a good time for killing trees."

This is the way such things were approached before more "scientific" ways evolved...and it worked then - so perhaps it will now!

It can be a big problem around here too. That and Black Berry vines. Not an expert, but I would imagine that cutting it in the spring would be better than winter because in the winter all the energy as already went down to the roots to await warm weather, so cutting in the summer may prevent the leaves from producing more energy. Just a thought.

Black Plastic or black construction filter fabric will definately work. But, it may take two or more years of cutting off sunligh to completely cause the roots to rot away. Be sure that the area you cover is several feet bigger in all directions than the area of the roses. This will help to deter the roots from running to a light source.
