My battle with this mile-a-minute invasive weed destroyed my garden. First I pilled a load of wood on it and lit a bonfire and let it burn for 5 hours then the next day I got my weapons out (spade/shovel/pick) to dig out the roots but it looks like its gone under the pavement (see photo) so its beaten me because I'm not going to dig the pavement up â€¦But I'm glad I had a go because it was strangling and sucking all the life out of all the other plants around it.
