I think I've managed to get on top of my ground elder problem. I waited until the leaves uncurled and then sprayed them with Roundup, as advised. It's the second year I've sprayed, and they are coming up much less. Be careful not to let the spray drift onto other plants, but if they are quite woody stemmed plants, they will be ok. Keep looking amongst the surrounding plants during the spring and summer, and spray each leaf you find as it appears. I have a totally unkempt garden next to mine and am constantly fighting ground elder, brambles, ivy and worst of all - bindweed! Good luck.
