Q How can we get rid of wild garlic plants in our borders? FREDA GRIFFITHS, BY EMAIL
A Wild garlic can be invasive and digging up the bulbs will be a laborious job, especially if they’ve been there for some time and have shed seeds into the soil. You’ll be able to weaken the plants by hoeing them off in spring. Or, spray them, when they’re in full leaf, with a weedkiller containing glyphosate, such as Roundup.
