The Q&A Archives: Kill weeds, but not bulbs in the lawn?

Question: I have crocus planted in the grass outside of some of my round flower beds. I also have every weed known to man growing in my lawn. How do I kill the weeds but not the bulbs?

Answer: There are no weed killing chemicals that won't affect your bulbs so you will need to remove any weeds with a sharp, long-handled hoe. Once the weeds are out you can mulch over the bare soil to suppress future weeds.
