I think I have wild onions growing in my flower bed. The weed looks kind of like grass but smells like onions. When pulled out of the ground it has a small bulb at the end. I have tried weed killer (last fall) and I have tried to dig them up (last fall and now) but they keep coming back! What else can I do go get rid of this weed with out killing my flowers? Also is this plant edible? Thanks for your help!
:grin:

To get rid of them requires as much persistance that they have desire to grow. While keeping them mowed slows them a bit it has about as much effect as pulling them. You can dig them making sure you get all the bulbs but in large areas that is not practical. You have to spray them with a post emergence herbacide in the late fall and in early spring and it may take a couple of years to get the best of them.

Some people still like to use them as seasoning but if you have sprayed them, bad idea.
