The weed-killer must be applied to green growth.  It won't do anything to roots.  I am talking of normal Glyphosate.  Do not apply to anything before the weather warms up.  Anything you spray must be growing well.

Digging is by far the best solution.  There will be weak growth from  the roots left behind.  Easy to deal with.

Nettles are very satisfactory to pull up.  They like really fertile soil so they may be on an old muck-heap.  Suitable weedkiller will deal with re-growth or what you fail to remove.

Exclude the horses from any weed-killer areas.

If you don't want them do not put them on the compost or you will have potatoes in your compost. If you want to get rid of them, put them in the waste food bin.

Most Councils put the information you need in their website.  It makes interesting reading.

Are biodegradeable compost bags safe?

Our Council asks people not to use bio-degradable bags because they will contaminate a whole load.  Instead we use paper bags made for the purpose or line the waste food caddy with newspaper.
