Removing stubborn ornamental grass

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 18:07

Thanks for the name Nutcutlet! It has been in for about 5 years and has really taken hold, I have been pulling out babies for years! 

Thank you Dove, brilliant idea! I am off on my holidays in 2 weeks so if I do it now hopefully by the time I get back it will have taken effect. As you can see from the top picture it is quite majestic when in full flow but has just taken over, it is time to go and be replaced with something I can prune!

I have a very large grass in my front boarder that I have often seen at riversides. (the plant at the back of this photo)

I am having trouble removing it,

 I have cut it down, and as you can see the boarder is very narrow, I am having a devil of a job removing it, any suggestions? 

 

Plant ID please

Thanks Hogweed, I picked it up from a local community fair for £1 but they didn't know what it was! I just thought it was pretty, I shall go and investigate.

One more quick question, the pot it is in currently is quite small (approx 7inches) should I put it into a large pot now and then leave it the hell alone?
