I've done all the 'methods' here and they work with some success.

I have really problematic thorny bushes (I liken them to wild roses, but they don't flower). Currently I cut off the stem leaving it about a foot in length. Then I force the stem into a small bottle (I have test tubes) containing straight brush killer. After a week or so, I can reuse the set-up on another bush. Yet to be determined is how effective this is against a multiple stemmed bush. I think it will kill the whole bush; we'll see.
