help needed

I am growing my own petunia, lobelia started from seed and geranium from plug and I am growing all of them on windowsills. These plants are still young and not frost hardy anyway.

Think your meant to bruise the foliage and apply glyphosate to it I think but I believe it is difficult to eradicate and deep rooted. Saying that being covered by the weed sheet may have weakened it.

I may have a go and see how it turns out. I'm having trouble getting pansies to survive in my soil. possibly pansy sickness or something so thought I would try in a basket.
