plant IDS

I have started to dig out my ground elder and have had to resort to removing all the plants.

This grass like club is going to be a nightmare to remove an I was wondering what it is and weather is worth saving?

It's a bit tricky to see but tulips and geraniums aside!


 Also I have these invaders in a bunch. I wasn't sure if it was fully grown ground elder or not. Its the 3 with the purplish tops and oak tree shaped leaves.

    The first pic:  The grass-like stuff looks like muscari leaves (grape hyacinths).

    The second pic: The plant with the purplish tops and oak-leaf shaped leaves isn't ground elder - don't know what it is tho - someone will image

    Thanks Dove but don't muscari Flower in spring these are still only small leaves.

    In the top pic I can see ground elder, aquilegia and something else that could be one of the michaelmas daisies or possibly achillea ptarmica

    I can see purplish tips in pic 2 and I should know what they are but it won't come to me.

    A few pics from different angles might help

    looks like a geranium on the left, aquilegia on the right, some crocus leaves and bluebells but I can't do the one right in the middle
