Someone please tell me that there is a way other than digging out ground elder to get rid of it. I've been plagued for 14 years with it and although I do try and dig it out every year it still comes back in force the next year. I know that even the tiniest bit of root that's left in the ground grows into another plant and I've also picked all the flower heads off to stop it seeding it'self. This year I have resorted to weedkiller which I'm not happy about using but I'm at my wits end. The leaves have shrivelled but I know it's not going to get rid of it, though I do have a nice fresh bed clear of everything else to plant new shrubs in when it's safe to do so. Many thanks for any advice, I'm new here and not a fab gardener, though keen to try most things.
