Hi,
I am a newbie but very enthusiastic gardener. I am trying to clear about 500 sq feet of mostly onion grass to plant a wildflower garden. Do I really need to turn over all the dirt and pull the bulbs out by hand? I've spent about 10 hours clearing 100 feet. Is there a better way?
Thank so much!

Keep turning the soil for a whole season and when fall gets here you can broadcast your wildflower seed. Every time you turn the soil the onion grass will get dislodged and dryed out on top of the soil. Turn it about every two weeks for the best results. In time you will have no onion grass left.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Thanks very much. I appreciate your response. Makes sense but it also means I won't have flowers this summer. Rats
