I got it out of my - small - garden by hoeing everything off, burning it, then deep double digging the ground three times in as many years, each time removing and burning any roots I found. In between diggings, any shoots appearing were hoed and burnt. After three years the ground was clear. Eventually you will kill it, but its a lot of work and takes years
When I say deep double digging - I mean around three feet. You have to get - as far as possible - every trace of root out
