Overrun by Aquilegia
I have recently moved into a cottage with a beautiful but neglected garden. The vegetable plot has not been worked for several years and as a result is completely infested with Aquilegia. I am not physically able to dig them out by hand, as it is a very large area and my age is against me! I have removed half a dozen to keep and grow on elsewhere but need some advice as to anything I can treat them with to be rid of them so I can reclaim the vegetable garden. Any help would be massively appreciated. Regards Marilyn

I wish I could come get a few plants from you!
With that being said, perhaps a local garden club could help you remove the plants.
Many gardeners would be thrilled to receive free plants for the price of digging them up.
