Hi Valerie, Onion weed is notoriously hard to eradicate but here are two options for you – organic and chemical:

Organic treatment would require in the spring or Autumn to dig out the clumps of the wild onion with a spade or trowel. Throw it away, soil included. Do not compost or shake off soil back into the hole it came from.
Next pour boiling water on the remaining plants. The hot water will kill any plant it touches so be careful with the other plants in the area.
Keep a close watch on the area, when you see new plants appear, repeat the above process.
In the case you are unable to use the first method, keep the leaves trimmed to interrupt the growth cycle.

For a chemical treatment- We would recommend using Amitrole along with a penetrate such as pulse. The penetrate will help the spray absorb into the foliage of the plants.

Thanks the Palmers Team
