I have cleared the back of my garden of nettles (they been there for some years)I am now wanting to use this space what can I put down to stop them coming back as I believe that they have runners.

    Wait until new growth comes through and then spray with roundup

    I'd dig them up. If you kill them you'll still have to dig all those roots out.

    There will probably be lots of seeds in the soil after you have forked out the yellow roots. When they germinate, you can hoe them off.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
