    Hi Mar: I don't know about this killing the roots too, but you can try it.

    Homemade Weed Killer:

    I've heard this works. Don't know if it will kill the flowers, though:(

    1 gallon of Vinegar

    2 cups epsom salt

    1/4 cup of the original BLUE Dawn dish soap

    Mix in a spayer.

    It should kill anything you spray it on. Mix and spray in the morning and after the dew has evaporated. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. By evening, the weeds should be all gone.
