Chuck,

Your options are to either keep digging them out with their roots until they are gone, or to wipe a weed killer such as glyphosate (Roundup) on the foliage of the weeds without getting it on any desirable plants. Spraying is probably too risky since the weed killer spray can drift.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
