To win the war agains Ground Elder
I'm trying my best to get rid of the ground elder that is envading my garden!
At the moment i cut my grass twice a week, and when ever i see a leaf i try to carefully dig it up with as much root as possible.
I have a dog that uses the back garden and its growing from under the hedge, so I don't want to use any chemical sprays if can get away with it, also don't weedkiller to kill the hedge
I have tried roundups gel, and applied it on a small patch on the leaves and fenced off so dog couldn't touch it, couple days later still looked the same, so i applied more. still no difference so applied more... so thats now out of the question, is there any other 'paint on' weedkiller that would work? i can bar off small areas in the garden.
any suggestions would be great as i feel i'm gona be digging it up forever! I know that i've certainly been able to slow it down as its not going to get the chance to flower which is a help
