Ground elder

Posted: 18/01/2013 at 13:46

We have SO MUCH ground elder in our garden it's unbelievable.  I think it could qualify for a national collection! 

Roundup got rid of it when we first purchased our house in summer 2012 and then one of the very overgrown flowerbeds was dug over and all traces of ground elder that we could see were removed.  Still lots trying to come up there though! 

I think it's going to be a long hard slog to get rid of it all.  

We uncovered a patch at the back of the garden that had been covered in black plastic sheeting for a couple of years.  That was about 2 months ago and now ground elder is shooting up there like a carpet.  Would roundup be effective this time of year so should I try and dig it out?  We want to sow grass seed on the area eventually.  

Awful stuff!
