So after many attempts at ridding my front and rear garden from this monster I've finally decided to ask if anyone else has any advice?? It's driving me completely crazy.
Firstly it was present in both sites when we moved in and despite my many attempts to dig up/weedkiller etc it still comes back. We have completely changed our back garden, making it a lovely child-friendly place with my raised bed and other bed/areas for plants. But I must have left this plant in the ground in part while the digger was turning it over and it has now spread, in part to other areas of the lawn/beds!
I even applied glyphosate, by gloved hand to the individual leaves but it killed them off and the surrounding grass!! Now I have part killed the plant off and have incredibly burned/brown grass.
I would love to see the back of this plant and have even dug them out by hand but unless you get every single one out properly and include the bulb it will come back!!
I'll go and take a decent picture and post to this thread in a bit.
Thanks for reading.
