Talkback: Ground elder

Posted: 21/02/2013 at 11:57
I had a problem with the ground elder beginning to invade my borders in amongst established shrubs, which I didn't want to lose, I mixed up a strong solution of glyphosate in a hand spray, and used this on each leaf which I crushed with gloved hands before spraying, each new leaf which appeared got the same treatment, yes it was time consuming, but the result was worth it - my shrub is still intact and the ground elder is all but gone. A more established clump of ground elder was bruised with a rake then sprayed, which also worked well, hope this helps a fellow gardener.
