Help me with digging up a flower/weed bed to make way for my vegetable plot!
So I have started digging an area with a garden fork but am coming across this green plant that has a stringy root that is quite deep seated, I am worried the digging is breaking the root up more and may stimulate more growth, so should I stop digging and use a weedkiller on the leaves and dig that when it has died off?
There are lots of forget-me-nots which I find pretty so I have transplanted some to the other parts of the garden, then I suddenly wondered if I was doing the right thing as there seems to be a carpet of these and am now worried that they are too intrusive. They are the type with rounded leaves and shallow roots so maybe I can just pull them if they get too greedy.
I have a sparse border out front and was thinking of transporting some forget-me-nots into there and also the (bluebells / white bells) at the end of the bed, but can these be invasive too? I don’t want to spread problems around the rest of the garden.
Can anybody advise on what this green plant is and how best to dig it out?
Should I transplant the forget-me-nots / bluebells or bin them?
