1. I have a broadleaf weed that has spread via its strong root system into my pachysandra ground cover. Because both the weed and my ground cover have entangled root systems, I cannot pull the weed and its root system out of the bed. How can I kill the weed without harming my pachysandra?
What I mess.Â Iâve got something similar going on in my garden.Â Unfortunately, there is no good âkillâ solution to this problem.Â What I can suggest is this, if you canât pull the weed by hand, then you should consider trying to remove sections of your ground cover with a sharp shovel.Â Cut manageable sized squares, three inches deep, pick up the slice and weed out the unwanted vegetation over a wheelbarrow while you let loose dirt fall.Â Then transplant the pachysandra back into your garden.Â This is a very tedious process, but may be worth it considering the amount of ground cover you have established.
