Will Preen kill my plants instead of my weeds....


....in my flower bed. I've tried everything. I even killed half the plants and flowers in my bed using some other shite that guaranteed that it wouldn't kill my plants. Last weekend, I almost broke my back pulling weeds and earlier in the Spring I used the weedblock and that shite didn't work. I went to Home Depot and they told me to use Preen. It would kill the weeds and not kill your plants.

OT, is this true?

Think of Preen as a condom....

It won't kill the plants or weeds that you have... but it will prevent any new weeds from growing.

The one time I used it (years ago) it made the mulch stick together, almost like it was glue. This basically prevented weeds from coming up through the mulch, but it looked like crap. If you ever have to do anything to the bed after you apply it, your mulch will be like a turtle shell over the dirt.

For me, the hassle after the fact was not worth the results. I just mix twice the recommended amount of Round Up in a pump sprayer and be as careful as possible.
