This is a little off-topic, but I was wondering, would this product be
safe for also spraying amongst vinca, violets, tulips, daffodils,
crocus, etc.?  When my husband and I first moved in to this townhouse,
there was a patch of dirt between our walkway and our neighbor's.  My
husband was able to get grass to grow in it, then we planted the bulbs
and such, and then finally I planted the vinca.  They've all done very
well, but so has the grass!  It gets to be a pain in the summer when we
have to go out there every week and hand-clip the grass down.  I want to
eradicate it, but without harming the other plants.  Is this possible
with POAST?
