How can I remove twitch from a border? The grass has grown through hebes and ground covers so it is difficult to dig out or to spray with weedkiller. I’ve painted some grass clumps with a glycophosphate and tied little plastic bags over the stems in the hope the poison will be absorbed down into the root system, but it’s a slow and fiddly process. Tried planting French marigolds as a deterrent but the marigolds did not thrive. Your advice would be appreciated.

Twitch or Indian doab(Cynodon dactylon) or Bermuda grass as it is also referred to as and generally deemed an annoying weed. The best measure of control for small infestations is to carefully lift long stolons from the sward and dip or paint on a 3:1 solution of roundup. The active ingredient will translocate through the remainder of the plant. This must be carried out when the plants are actively growing in summer. In the infestation is heavy then the lawn may need a complete spray with round up followed by replacement or re-seeding. Alternatively, you transplant the the plants from the border and treat the entire area and surround lawn and then replant.
