Fairygirl is spot on, but I would add that when you plant them back, or whatever you decide to do, always cut them down by about a third. This will allow them to shoot out from the bottom otherwise you will be left with a one stick hedge.

What do you mean by mulching the tar out of them?

They are late flowerers, if you get rid of them, what else have you got that will flower through till autumn?

Too cold at nights causes that.

It is a broadleaf weed,but they are still small. Thing is you dont want to go cutting your grass short while we have this dry spell.

We use Westland Lawn feed, weed and moss killer, its taken every dandelion, daisy, plantain etc out, lovely lawn, , they may come back later in the year, use it again, then catch them again next April.

Once again, look at the reviews on Amazon.

You need to be careful when you apply it, if it gets on your flower borders, it will damage your plants.

All is not lost, just keep at it. The colour of the lawn is fantastic, almost sea green/blue, the more you can strengthen your lawn, the better it will be.

I have used others but find Westland the best.

 just to add...I am no way connected with the Westland company, just swear by their products.

You could try a 'selective ' weed killer, kills weeds not grass. Have a look on Amazon for Verdone then look at the reviews

But at the time Mike, he said it in all seriousness, I think it was a farming prog.
