    Can you spray an over the top on crown vetch to get rid of weed grasses w/o hurting the vetch? Johnson and Quack grass are the culprits. Little bit of thistle also.

    I have had some luck with the grasses with Fusilade/sethox applied somewhat carefully, but as far as the thistle most products like Lontrel will totally destroy crown Vetch, I actually use Lontrel at times just for that purpose, Quick heads up, Lontrel will be coming off patend very soon.

    Also, going into next season come in with high rates of snapshot, plan on getting like 8,000 m2 out of a bag which isn't very much but that's the rate you need to really cut down on these harder to control beds.
