If you find it Devonchick, you can sit back on your money mountain!! It only responds to lots of hand extraction, yes you can use chemicals if you want, but the very tiniest bit left will grow again. Quite honestly in some areas you might just decide to learn to live with it, we have, just trying to ensure it never flowers. It was actually introduced into Britain by the Romans as a treatment for aches and pains, then it was known as Bishops wort, as Bishops were then the only people rich enough to at so well as to get gout! A tea made with it, steep a cup of young leaves in boiling water for about 5 minutes, drink hot. after gardening, if you have sore bones and joints. It does help and aids sleep - this may make you feel less fed up with it!
