Hi there. Does anyone have any tips for totally eradicating wild garlic from a garden. it may well be a nice smell, useful for recipes and provide ground cover but it's not something I want in our garden and I thought I had got rid of it all last year, having spent hours digging and destroying the bulbs. I'll happily continue digging if this is what I have to do but I would be interested in any other tips. Thanks v much
Popping Charleys question back up to the top so some nice member can help out.
Bump re spam
It's dig or glyphosate Charley. and never let them seed.
It will take a while, there'll be some tiny, almost invisible, seedling bulbs in there.
In the sticks near Peterborough
I've inherited this and I've been slowly digging them up. Patience needed as the bulbs are tiny.
Hi all,am i missing somthing here,i dont understand,what is : popping Charlies to the top mean : and what is brenda1952,message mean and to what ??
Alan, bumping up means getting questions higher up the list so replies come quickly instead of getting lost in the general melee.
Spam is he same as the general meaning. Some companies insert messages for kitchens and other rubbish which this forum isn't for.
Alan, we had a load of Spam advertising posts this morning and they took up the top of the page, so by putting a post on here, even if it says nothing relevant, it 'bumps' the real threads back to the top of the web page so visitors to the site can see them rather than posts about rubbish kitchen installations
'Bump' and 'Ping' are two words that people use when pushing proper posts back to the top - is that clear - I know what I mean

Mornig Dove, Now it all makes sence,and eresme thinking the bump was a dance,
good luck all with the pingin and bumpin, keep these spammers out ,And its raining here in Munds AGAIN ,designing a mason bee hotel today all technical stuff uno
On the upsside, re the Garlic, it only grows once a year and isn't too hard to dig up unless it's in a rocky place
Looks like I'll be digging for some time nutcutlet. It's all in the wood right behind us, so it may be a continual problem. I'm guessing it's the almost invisible seedling bulbs that caught me out too. Is glyphosate like a weed killer?
Fluffy Cloud - ha ha, patience is indeed needed ... not sure how much I have though
