Can anyone tell me if this a weed or plant. I have tried to dig up to replant other stuff, but i can't seem to get rid of it. The roots go for miles and I mean miles, all along the length of border and outwards to the edge of lawn. Getting desperate now. Ignore heading of photo, downloaded other stuff

Looks like that white, mustard type flower we were discussing the other day. A weed.

Yes it has got white flowers..... How do I get rid of it ?

Just keep digging, sorry. We have it in a corner of the garden, partly under a hedge, and I just have a go at it every year.

Won't a weed killer do the trick? My back aches at the thought of digging it again. Gave it a good going over last spring. Don't like using them but.....

Shh, yes you can use something like Roundup if you wish but the weed is still persistent and you have to avoid getting any spray on other plants.
