To get rid of clover before it overruns your flower gardens, try digging it up with a narrow trowel or isolating it in a paper cup before spraying with weed killer.
I'm Donna Emery from Glover Nursery in West Jordan, Utah. We're going to talk about eliminate clover from your flower gardens. When you've got a mixed flower and shrub bed like this one weeds can be a real problem. You have to be very careful with weed killers or you can damage your desirable plants. Here we have clover mixed into this bed. I only have a couple of options to deal with it. First is the shovel method. Okay, I use a narrow trowel like this so I can fit it into small areas and only dig up the weed I'm after and not the surrounding plant. So, I can carefully dig up and pull out this clover, make sure to get as many roots as possible or if it's just too wrapped around another plant I have another method I like. I take an ordinary paper cup and cut the bottom out of it, place it over the weed and shoot the weed killer down through it and carefully remove it. Never spray any weed killer on a very hot or windy day. The weed killer can drift on the heat waves or with the wind and damage surrounding plants.
