hmm not the best news then!!  :unsure: Thanks all for the help and especially for Aunt Sally for identification and a link which im just about to read!

Hopefully it wont be too bad.. theres not much showing at the moment so hopefully i can just keep digging up as much of it as i can get! Will invest in something to burn it all in too :)

Bit worried about it getting to it if its in the raspberry patch though!  :unsure:

I had some rosebay willow growing in the garden and one late summer when I went to pull it out, I got the shock of my life - there were several elephant hawkshead moth caterpillars.  I've always left a few in the garden since then.

I've got mint popping up everywhere in my raised beds! :(

I keep pulling it out, digging as deep as I can to get the roots, but I know I'm goin to be at it all season.  It's going to be hard to get at it when its amongst my radishes etc.

Will it seriously affect the plants in the beds or will it be ok as long as I keep pulling it up?

Mint it notoriously hard to get rid of, and very invasive as you have found out!

It is recommended that you bury it in a pot.

While your crops are growing just keep pulling out by hand and it shouldnt affect them too much, but you will need a good couple of digs at the end of the season pulling out every scrap you can find.

Thanks for that info Aunt Sally.   I think I shall just have to stick with the glysophate. 
I got a 2 ltr plastic bottle and cut of the bottom and the top, then cut it open from bottom to top.  You can wrap it around anything you wish to spray and it prevents any transferrence to anything else nearby.   Mrs Bouquet

Those bottles all seem so useful don't they Mrs B!

I was wondering about cutting off the tops and bottoms then along the length, exactly the same way as you suggest, and holding them open with a wire cage, to make a 5" high starter cloche.

It's a bit fiddley, but if this weather keeps the way it is, there'll be a heap of those blasted bottles as high as a kite, so I might as well try and use them...

That link just takes you to the forum home page.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
