Its that time of year when the quack grass is really taking off in between my iris. It says use l oz GG plus l oz oil concentrate per gallon water

What kind of oil can I use for this? I hope I don't have to buy that separately. Can I use regular vegetable oil?

I hope this works. I can barely see the iris because there is so much grass coming up in my iris bed.

What says?
The only method I have found that works to control Quack Grass is to dig out the rhizomes. That does mean diging the Iris rhizomes and gently removing the Quack Grass rhizomes but it also only need to be done when the Iris rhizomes need to be dug up, about every 5 years.
Apparently Grass Getter requires that you purchase another product, ie. spend even more money, to help the product do its job. You cannot use vegetable oil with Grass Getter because Herbicide Helper is a surfactant, something that reduces surface tension and helps some penetrate something better.
