Dock weed growing in mondo grass

I have a small bed with mondo grass, Dutch iris, and lamb's ear which is infested with dock. How can I kill off the dock and other weeds without harming the wanted plants?

General Advice • Weeds

Dock weed (Rumex obtusifolius) is a challenging weed to manage. In a mixed garden bed with mondo grass, your best bet may be hand removal. 

If hand removal is not suitable, you may like to consider carefully applying by hand 'Yates Zero Rapid 1 Hour Action Weedkiller Gel' to the weeds. It is important to remember that this is non-selective, so careful application is required to not harm wanted plants.
