With any 'thug', it is simply (ha!) a case of dig, pull, yank, dig more all the time. I had a problem with vinca (periwinkle) in my last garden...I spent almost a week digging it out of one long border but I was still finding bits of it 18 years later when we sold! In my current garden, I am trying to get rid of Japanese anemones. Yes, I know they are very pretty, but they are appearing in the lawn now. Still, I'm only 4 years into the task so a while to go yet...I find the main culprits are hypericum, vinca, lamium and, yes, Creeping Jenny. There is no solution other than perseverance I'm afraid!
