I think Monkshood is growing in my lawn and very close to my well, which is the sole source of water to the house for consumption, cooking, washing etc. Assuming I should get rid of the Monkshood, how should this be done? At the moment it is covering about 20m+ of the garden and the plants are about 18cms high. Many thanks

If you pursue the removal of monkshood from your lawn, be aware that all parts of the plants are poisonous and you will want to prevent contact with your skin - so be sure to wear gloves. I would recommend digging it up versus pulling it out. Try to get as much of the roots as possible - you should not have to dig too deep because it is not deeply rooted.
