Well I would start w/ a pre emergent in the spring and follow that up every 90 days. That should keep them out of there. There is no selective weed control that will kill the weeds and not hurt the flowers.

how many flowers are there now? is the bed even worth saving? would it be just as cost effective to use round up and spray'm all and start over? then you can use pendulm 3.3ec for pre-m of the grass'y weeds and gallary for the pre-m of the broadleaf weeds. i use this on an every 6 week service and hand weed is almost none!

If it is an annual flower bed, looks like hand pulling. Pre-emergent will stunt the roots of the annuals.

Fert and water is actually a decent answer if it is an annual bed. This will create a thicker cover, blocking sunlight from the weeds......

If it is a landscape bed, I use dimension ec with round-up. Yes, dimension is much more expensive than pendimethlin. But, so is mrs jones brand new paver sidewalk and white pvc fence that will get stained yellow.
