How can I control spurge?
What is the best way to control spurge which seems to be inundating my perennial garden areas? It grows by rhizomes which I also find in the grassy areas?

There is not an easy way to control the rhizomatous spurges. Repeated applications of glyphosate (Round Up) applied to the actively growing plant will set it back, but it does take persistence and repeated applications of the herbicide to kill the weed.
