Q.How To Get Rid Of Creeping Charlie
I planted periwinkle vine as ground cover, which was well-established after 3 years. When my back was turned, creeping Charlie infiltrated the bed. it’s impossible to pull it out without also pulling the periwinkle. is there any way to get rid of the creeping Charlie without having to dig up the whole bed and start over?

Unfortunately, since it's in your flower bed, you can't use herbicides on it. (Unless you want to do the painstaking task of "painting" a nonselective herbicide that contains glyphosate on the creeping charlie.) Pulling it out when the soil is wet is your best option, but of course, some will come back, and you'll have to keep an eye on it.
