I have a project that has torpedo grass growing inside and between a pile of minima jasmine. What would be the best way to get it out of there? I would like to save the jasmine. Any Advice would be very appreciated,

Thank you,
Charliy Steel :confused:

That grass/weed seems to be a tough one to deal with. You have to stay on top of it to control it.

Here is a great article (http://www.nola.com/homegarden/index.ssf/2012/07/go_on_the_offensive_against_to.html) on the topic:

"Where you can apply an herbicide only to the torpedograss foliage, apply glyphosate at the highest label rate regularly as needed (Roundup, Killzall, Grass and Weed Killer and other brands). This can be used near and around desirable ornamentals as long as you don't get it on their foliage."

Let me know if this helps and keep us posted on how it goes.
