Agree with Nut.

 

  1. Lovage - wonderful in salads, soups and stocks
  2. Honesty
  3. Mallow - looks like the weed rather than the more desirable forms.

AND ... if we wanted to grow it in our veg patches, what's the betting slugs and snails and caterpillars would love the leaves, and vine weevil grubs would eat the roots

At that size I'd leave them as they are.

Not sure that I'd have used a propagator outside - in a cold greenhouse yes but not out in the rain. 

It's not a heated one is it?

Even if the police were useless, at least you're following the correct course of action and not taking things into your hands - have you been told to record incidents or report them to the non-emergency number so that they can record them?

As Dave has said, spray with glyphosate then leave until the plant dies down and goes brown - only then has the glyphosate got into the roots to kill them. 

If you pull the ground elder up before that has happened the roots will grow again, and every tiny piece of ground elder root left behind will grow - that's a promise

The root always grows first before the shoot which will have leaves on appears.  If there is only one shoot it's the root

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I've pricked out the sweetcorn, squashes and a load of other seedlings that were ready, sowed some more of the free tomato seeds, potted on some baby hellebores, cut back the ferns, removed the windbreak fabric from around the purple sprouting, spent a long time gazing into the pond, weeded the bed in the front garden, moved some heavy pots around, cut back the big sage plant and weeded the herb bed and done some other bits and pieces. 

Most of the back garden's in shade now, so I've collapsed on the sofa - at least the water board's pneumatic drill is quieter in here
