The Q&A Archives: Flower beds

Question: What can I use to kill bermuda grass that is in my flower bed that won't kill my daylillies and other flowers?

Answer: If Bermuda grass gets into the garden bed you need to remove the stolon, root and all. Wet the flower bed down well and using gloves pull up the runners, root and all. Any root left whatsoever will start an new Bermuda grass plant. If the runners are very deep in clay soil and cannot be pulled out get a painters wool glove and wearing a second rubber glove place the painters glove on your hand and douse with Roundup week killer at the recommended dilution. Run you painter's glove with weed killer on it across the shaft of all the grass in your flower bed, careful not to touch garden plants.After the grass has died pull what remains out. Repeat the process for any new shoots that crop up.
