Invasive plants

Wild garlic is rampant in my garden. It grows up though other plants and it seems impossible to remove it. Each year I dig up and destroy hundreds of little bulbs but each year the number of plants has increased so that it has almost taken over my garden. is there any way I can remove these apart from getting a bulldozer in?

    Well, look on the bright side. Firstly, they are delicious. Secondly, they die down in summer so you don't have to look at them for long.



    Maybe you could eat them out of existence? Offer them to a local restaurant?

    Your garden must smell pretty ripe when you are pulling them up. I believe they are a very fashionable culinary item at posh restauraunts so maybe you could make some money from them.

    I've got spearmint and Bowles apple mint in my garden.  I'm seriously considering water mint for the bank behind the wildlife pond.  Love mint image

    Dove, you're welcome to as much water mint as you like in June. Our lake is over-run with the flippin' stuff.
