I find pulling it regularly seems to work, I have it in my garden but its not really a pest.

When pulling it dont just rip it out, pull gently and get your hand down into the soil to pull up as much of the root as possible.

I dont need luck getting the money back as I work there lol

I wanted to get going early and its been cold this week so I thought I might aswell use it.

What a disaster that was, Guess I'll have to wait until March like you Lizzie and try getting electricity over the Summer.

Nice to see the days getting longer though even if it is freezing ^_^

Started using the Parasene heater I bought from work last year but havent needed until now, fine for a couple of nights.

Woke up this morning to a black soot filled greenhouse. After reading the many reviews all over the internet about this product I'm surprised its still on sale.

I shall be getting my money back for it and trying to get electricity to the greenhouse instead.

On the plus side, nothing seems too damaged in there, though I had to wash out the entire greenhouse and clean all soot off my plants.

Good excuse to clean everything out I guess :P

Leave them alone until mid-april. I would cut back then and they should re-grow fast
