Any ideas on how to get creeping Charlie out of my iris' beds? It just seems like it's everywhere.

It pulls out pretty easily. We had Boston Ivy and creeping Charlie both creeping in from the neighbor's yard. So my husband and I simply worked at pulling it for several days. It looks a lot better now!

Creeping Charlie is really hard to get rid of for me too. I pull it out, and it comes back full force. Seems to ignore the pre-emergent, and even strong herbicides don't seem to bother it much. I've heard the if you spray it going into winter it helps some, but nothing really gets rid of it. I try not to use those things though, so I guess it's just keep pulling.
