    Just pluck them when they get long enough. I'm constantly plucking sedgegrass from LFS and clover.

    I don't bother pulling them out until they get big. I do however, pull them out immediately if they are growing right up against the plant.

    Ha! I had wood sorrel (shamrock) growing in one of my Sarracenia pots. I let it grow because it was around Saint Patrick's Day and it was starting to flower. Ok, a few weeks afterwards it finally flowered and I decided to pull it out. The whole dirt ball and Sarracenia came up with it. Talk about extensive roots.

    Never again. Any weeds get pulled out ASAP.

    Put a layer of top dressing on it. It doesn't have to be sphagnum - it can be perlite, peat - or even decorative stones.

    unfortunately it is almost impossible to keep the weeds out. Plucking is you only fix. You should see my bog. The grass is crazy in it. I pluck it when I get time. easy to do when it is dormant too.
