Answer for Kiskin: As with most weeds, being consistent about pulling them up for a year or two will be your best defense. The first year dig up the bed and remove as much of the plants and roots as you can. During the first and second year pull any new growth you see ASAP, especially in the spring. This will help exhaust the nutrients in the roots/rhizomes. There’s a reason it’s called goat weed. If you can have them, goats will be one of your best lines of defense against noxious weeds. In the show notes there will be a great article about using goats.
