RE: Canada Thistle Field Day

Can you please share any information on how to erradicate this obnoxious weed. Unfortunately, I live in ND and was not able to attend. I have two weeds that have been very challenging in my flowerbeds 1) Canadian Thistle 2) Bindweed or creeping jenny. I do have one other weed that is causing me to pull my hair out but I've not yet identified it. I've tried round up and it appears as though I might be giving them a good dose of fertilizer instead of a weed killing agent, even when using the 40% strength roundup.

Do any of you have success getting rid of these two weeds?
