That’s ultimately pretty tricky, your best bet unfortunately is to just pull them.
Hi Cindy, there are broad leaf killers and sterilizers, sterilizers kill everything, broad leaf only kill weeds and plants with wide or broad leaves, like a dandelion, thistle, or milkweed, but won't kill grasses. You can apply a weed killer with precision if you brush it on, or pour it at just the roots of the plant you want gone. Here's a recipe for an everything killer , hope this helped you.
Combine ingredients in a spray bottle and treat weeds at the sunniest time of day for best results.
Hi Cindy, this is what works for me. I've used both:
1 gallon of white vinegar
2 cups of Epsom salts
1/4 cup of dish washing detergent, like Dawn.
Mix the vinegar and salt until the salt is completely dissolved.
Mix in the Dawn until mixed well, but not all fuzzy and sudsy,sort of swirl it around.
Put in a spray bottle and spray the weeds liberally, in the morning after the dew has gone. Then, by evening the weeds should be dead or on their way out. Don't spray anything you want to keep or it will die too. I have used this and it works quite well. Also, it's good for making an edging as it kills only what it touches. If you have something like a piece of cardboard, hold it up and down, edgewise, and spray the area you want as an edge. Just be careful not to spray your flowers and/or bushes. Good luck
WEED KILLER WITH DAWN
1 gallon white vinegar
1 cup of salt
1 Tbsp liquid Dawn
Combine ingredients and put into a spray bottle and spray the weeds at the sunniest time of day.
This mix is very effective so make sure it doesn’t spray on something you DON’T want to kill.

My advice if you want to use a weed killer is to apply with either an artist brush or eye dropper in order to only kill the particular weed and not damage the surroundings. You will also want to make sure you use a natural killer vs. one of the deep penetrating commercial types.
