How long for ground elder to die from starvation and dehydration

Might be the way to go Hostafan. It's still heavy even though dry. I was hoping for somewhere within sack trolley range

Around April I was given a hellebore in a pot. It contained more ground elder than hellebore.

I decided to sacrifice the hellebore and put the whole lot in the GH and left it to dry out. May/June I tipped it all out on a metal tray, still in the GH, a solid lump, nothing has moved or crumbled and it's very dry.

Do you think the Ground Elder is dead yet? Can I put the lump on the garden somewhere to melt down over winter? It's quite a big lump, 15 inches maybe.

There's a bottle in the fridge Panda, sb 

Thank you all. I've been to a meeting this morning but some birthday gardening should start any minute.

I like the smell, it's a bit like crown imperial bulbs and foxes. 

A bit invasive, best not in a rockery where the roots can hide under  stones.

Bees like it

Thanks all. much appreciated

Soil. How good does it need to be, really?

No, go with what you've got. If we sieved all the bits out of our garden the whole thing would sink by several feet. 

A lot depends on what you want to achieve but something desirable will grow in whatever you have. You can always enrich pockets for anything that can't cope. I'm a great believer in planting to suit what you have rather than struggling to grow what doesn't want to grow
