Is that that stuff that grows all over everywhere with heart shaped leaves and has bulbs like little maggots.
I am obsessive about it, have spent hours today digging it out.
I have tried really strong weedkiller on jt, it just pops up next year and says na na you didn't get me!

Same problem - no cure but I will say that where i sprayed with glyphosate as experiment it is clearer. But can't spray that near plants

It does have such lovely sunny little faces 

I'll get my coat ..........

As i've said before - no good showing their faces if its a white border

There is a white version of it though.

It's the weeds that keep my 'lawn' green through the summer. 

03/03/2013 at 21:53
Without the weeds I'd have no garden

We have this pesky plant in our garden and OH and me have been trying to dig it up today. You just can't get rid of the d****d stuff,. any little node you leave behind comes back next year

Hi, here is an article on how to get rid: http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?pid=187

If they are amongst other plants, I spray the glyphosate using a window cleaner spray bottle, that way you can get small doses up close.

Thanks for that Sue, I think I will be clearing the border at the back end of the year and weed killing it. It's only a fairly small area so should not be too much of a problem. It's driving me mad.
