Hi there, I have been clearing a jungle of brambles since last summer (and I hope to turf over the area hopefully before this year is out). I am at now at the stage of bramble root digging. I have had advice from a nearby allotment owner who says I only need to get the thick roots and 'nodules' up. However reading this thread I am now wondering whether I should be removing everything, right down to the networks of very thin root ends (some are less than 1mm thick), but the soil is riddled full of them, over many square meters?
