How do I rid my garden of fishtail fern?

I have tried to dig up as I know you have to get the trail of roots but they are so dense and thick it's very hard.

Answer: Hi Veronica,
Fishbone fern will take some time to completely eradicate. Try to remove as much by hand and then apply Zero Glyphosate 490 to the younger, more actively growing fronds.

Zero Glyphosate 490 will translocate to some parts of the fern but unfortunately as there are bulbs produced, more than 1 application will be required.
It may take a couple of years to completely rid your property of this weed.
