Surrey, United Kingdom
Being a total beginner to gardening, I have a front garden about 3x4m2 and started digging up what i found out to be ground elder. The route system is immense a thick blanket about 4 inches deep of thickish roots with lots of little thin routes as well.
Being heavy handed I have broken the roots into so many pieces, which I have found out will probably all grow back.
I wanted to lay some turf on top...will it be safe with the remaining few roots or will it still grow through the grass?
What would you recommend to kill it? there are no leaves left to spray onto now.
