I enjoy listening to your radio show on Saturday mornings. I hope you can answer a few gardening questions for me. We have a weed that first appeared after having a tree cut down probably 6-7 years ago and also had the stump ground. This growth is green and has a little white bloom on it, what is really characteristic of it is a root I call a white carrot and the runners from the root are stretchy. Last year I took a sample of it to my local Pike Nursery and they suggested Image Herbicide which I connected to my garden hose and sprayed at 2 intervals 6 weeks apart. It did appear that the upper growth was affected at that time but it is back this year. Any suggestions. Sending 3 pictures, 2 of the upper growth and 1 of the root.
The other question I have is: Is there a pre-emergent that I can spray on my pine island beds, it seems I battle the same weeds every spring and I am sure they just reseed themselves before I get them all cleared out.
