Is there anything a person can use on dandelions to kill them without harming other plants in the flower bed?

Dandelions are broadleaf weeds so anything you spray to kill them will kill your perennials, too. Digging them out roots and all, especially before they go to seed is the best way to control them in a flower bed. You can carefully spray each dandelion with Round Up to kill it off but Round Up is a vegetation killer and any product that is sprayed or drifts onto your perennials will kill the plant parts it touches. You may need to protect your plants by covering them over with a cardboard box while you are spraying the dandelions. Hope this works for you!
