    If they are dry enough, you can blow them out. I have one of those really small rakes for going between and under shrubs that I use to clean out my hosta beds and it doesn't harm the spring bulbs that are three inches high already, or the Hostas that are starting to peak up as long as you use a light hand. If necessary, you can brush out the ones really close to the plants with a garden hand rake or by hand.

    A leaf blower usually does a good job, we have a Black and Decker that is a multi speed powerhouse. The closer you get to the leaves, the more force you will have in forcing them out.

    Try using a blower. That's what I use on mine.

    Hello I completely agree with above posters, try a leaf blower.
