killing a vining weed
Category: Lawns
I have a weed, I was told it is morning glory. How do kill this weed. It
is starting to over the flower beds. There way to much to pull up by hand.
Certain areas on the yard have a considerable amount of it. The flower bed
I am particularly having trouble with are iris's. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

Answer: Your best bet is to hand pull as much as possible. This is especially true for removing it in your flower beds, you wouldn't want to apply an herbicide there.

In the other spots, you can try one of the foaming low impact herbicides found at your local garden center. These are easier to control than sprays.
