It's a nuisance but on the plus side, it is edible.
Hostafan, I'm a cup half full sort of person
Thanks. Any idea how to get rid of it?
See the RHS link I posted for advice on getting rid of it
Well, organic types say dig up every single scrap of roots. ( every bit will regrow ) IMHO, you'll be doing it forever.
Non organic types would leave it to establish a decent cover of leaves, then spray with glyphosate.
Your garden, your choice.
Thank you all for your comments.
