View Full Version : Ground elder

06-Apr-07, 17:14
I decided to get started on the vegetable patch this afternoon with a view to planting a load of potatoes but the entire patch is infested with ground elder..... roots everywhere! One of the roots was 21 foot long! As long as I get most of the roots out it should be cool to plant potatoes?

nothing better than potatoes to 'clean' the ground.

Maybe a bit optomistic there Scunner. It is the work you do to grow spuds that cleans the ground.;) Ground elder is supposed to be edible (never tried it myself) so it's round to TMFDM's for a scoff!!
