    They are all through my customer's perennial bed. Any way to kill them without the surrounding plants?

    My fear is that everything is so close together. I don't want to kill anything other than the violets.

    Try wiping or painting on the Roundup with a foam paint brush. Tape it too a dowel if you don't want to bend over. You can really be selective that way. Works great! An adjustable nozzle on your sprayer and very low pressure can put out a needle point stream making tight work possible also. Neal
