Although the mugwort has almost completely overrun my garden, I continue to try to fight it Ė manually, it appears thereís no over the counter herbicide that works on it. The manual approach isnít terribly effective either, unless you turn up the earth completely and pull out every single root, which becomes difficult with a larger garden area. It may be a magical, pagan herb but I want it gone before it chokes the flowers. Yet I have to wonder about my sanity Ė this is the fourth year Iíve been fighting it with the same methods yet I expect different results.
