Renovating a rockery
Super gardener Posts: 93
Does anyone have any advice re renovating a rockery. Lots of ground elder etc. Not keen to remove all stones, though I know this may be preferable. Am wondering about dosing with Roundup, then covering it for this year with weed membrane, and planting up next year?
Ground elder is a pig to remove, as it has a huge network of creamy, rather thick roots underground that can extend far beyond the plants you see on the surface.
Also, when removing it, if you miss even a small bit of root or stem, or you let the b*gger seed, it will keep coming back.
