1. Will It Be OK to Use Preen to Prevent Weeds

Asked by Billieru - April 10, 2015

Will it be OK to use Preen in the soil to help prevent weeds where I am planting hen and chicks? Is there a better way? I have removed all the hen and chicks, pulled out grass and dirt away from roots, and tried to remove stray grass roots from the soil. Should I replant them close or spread apart?

5. Destroying Bindweed

Asked by lindag - April 13, 2015

I have an area about 200 sq feet that has been invaded by bindweed. If I put down a black plastic mulch, will that kill it? I normally don’t like to use plastic mulch, but if it gets rid of the bindweed, I will use it for a few seasons.


6. How Do You Kill Thistle?

Asked by donnacookrn - April 19, 2015

I believe the thistle came from manure I used for fertilization in planting the red maple. It has now taken over the entire flower bed. There are also daylilies and hostas in the bed. This spring the thistle has spread into the surrounding grass as well. The thistle forms purple flowers at the top that die off like dandelions to spread. I’ve tried several popular store brands of weed killers that haven’t worked, any ideas?


7. How in the World Do I Get Rid of Dollarweed?

Asked by jules6556 - April 19, 2015

I live in NW Florida and dollarweed is as hearty as roaches! I have tried everything I know to get rid of this monstrosity. We almost started raising it in our front flower bed! Even an ice storm doesn’t slow it down. I am at an a complete loss and am growing all my flowers and herbs in pots this year. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated.
