Getting Rid of Lily of the Valley?

I have invasive Lily of the Valley in my flower garden and want to rid of it. Has anyone had success? We have been digging and pulling out the roots, but I don't want to have to do that again and again. Please help.

Can you spray with Roundup? Try not to get on any plants you want to keep.

How about asking people on Freecycle if you want to get rid of your Lily of the Vally. There are probably many people in your area who would like to have some of yours, plus, they are not the cheapest to buy. Try to find all of the pips, and as much of underground roots in that area, and even if a few of the plants comes up, just pull them out, put them into a container, maybe a little soil to protect them, and someone will come and pick it up, even put a sign for free lily of the valley in a box on your curb, someone will most likely pick it up soon.

The simplest way is to dig up the soil, about 6 inches deeper than the roots and sift the soil to be sure you're getting all the pips and parts of the plants. If you can save the plants for someone else, many people value them. Good Luck!
