My mother swears by salt. She makes a small hole in the centre of the dandelion directly above the root, then she fills it with salt. It works for her.

Dig them out with a border fork, if any come back weedkill with Verdone.

I find its best to take them out,making sure you remove the long root as well, an old table knife is perfect for the job......

Orange oil is a good organic alternative, but follow the same precautions as RoundUp, that is, protecting the surrounding grass.
