    Oh dear, I think you're correct. Dug out hundreds of tiny ones last week, got some careful digging of the big ones to do this weekend. Looks like it'll be an ongoing issue.

    I plan to dig mine out of the flowerbeds and relocate them to the stream if I can.

    I'm continually digging them out of my garden, they populate a dampish spot but stay in that area.
    First, take responsibility .....

    Lords and ladies?
    I grew a huge decorative one which everyone admired - then it became a thug and populated the garden.
    Darn hard to dig out if you don't get them young.

    I used to work at a private 3.5acre garden & we had these at the edges of the long drive. They really do spread very quickly in the end we had to resort to spraying them & used a systemic gel on those that invaded the plant beds. As the other posts have said they are deep rooted so take some digging out. My advice is if you only have a few use roundup gel weed killer & never let it flower.

    Yes, beautiful Lords but I used to go round pulling off all the Ladies but they still kept seeding.

    Yes, I've been too tolerant and I've no time to go digging-up, so it'll be a selective chemical coup-de-grace when I do the field next week.

    Am I right in thinking that they are the sort of plant that will flourish from chopped up bits of root? We cleared quite a lot of old shrubs out of the borders last year and I'm wondering if we've managed to spread the blessed things around whilst turning the soil over.
