I dug out a small bed before Christmas and now want to plant in it. There is some bits of grass/weeds coming up. Should I put some Glyphosate on all the bed. I understand it will be inactivated by the soil and it is nearly all soil except for the bits of grass weeds.

Should I just spot treat the grass weeds. What is the best way to ensure the bed will have least problems?

Too early for Glyphosate member11809 as I believe that only works during the major growing season. Middle of March onwards or you are just wasting spray. Any chance you can dig out the grass and then mulch the bed when planted. If you could pop up a pic of the bed and grass it would give us more info.

yes i could dig out the grass but it will come back again when the bed planted. There is not much grass but it will eventually come through and i wanted to clear it all out before planting

Now i am about ready to plant in the bed. some grass coming up. Should i put Glyphosate on it and can i plant where the glyphosate was poured. Or what about premazor 57?

Spray the whole bed with Glyphosate, wait a week, then plant your plants.
