I have ground elder all over my garden. When preparing new beds for planting , is it wiser for me to dig out as much root as I can, or should I leave it be? It seems to me that cutting off exposed root is just a recipe for it to grow more!! I haven't seen ground elder leaves in the bed I am currently preparing ; it is just that I have come across the root as I have been digging. What's your advice? Is there any chemical I can use specifically on the root or do these only work on the leaves. Thanks for any useful tips you can offer me.
