Dig the individual thistle plants out of the garden before they have a chance to flower and produce seeds. Discard the thistle plants. It might come back so you must continue to dig the thistle up as it reappears to weaken the plant until it finally dies out. If you need to spray an herbicide in the spring check with your county extension service for recommendations for your area.
