round up or weedol are very good for the offending articles and none of my other plants have been damaged by using these

My local Wilkinson has what looks like a blowtorch on a long pole with aerosol looking cans, but then again, I think that it is used to kill pathway weeds.

Personally I would dig them up though.

Hi Alex we tried the weed wand for weeds in the path - didn't seem to do a lot. Hijuju I used to happily recommend Roundup until I discovered that, despite the claims, it does build up in the soil...
