May 28: I couldn't find the 3 plants I moved last fall to save them, but there was a nice clump in the raised bed. I moved it to a spot in a regular bed. There was no quack grass in it.

July 2: I I moved 3 plants to a new bed about a week ago. I was careful to remove the quackgrass roots from their soil. They seem to have almost died in their new spot howevver. As for the old bed, I sprayed it with glyphosate, and since then trampled it during construction of the raised flower bed.
