Creeping Jenny Plants

Q.Weed and Feed

Zone Saranac MI 48881 | Jlovro1009 added on May 7, 2017 | Answered

We planted Creeping Jenny on the steep hill behind our house three years ago as recommmended by the landscaper. The purpose was to control tall weed growth.
The first year it did very well. Last year, three quarters of the hill had to be replaced…we have no idea what happened to the plants. Initially last spring the plants were coming back beautifully and then were simply gone. Since replanting we have been diligent about keeping control of weeds.
This year the plants are coming back OK, but so are the tall weeds.
We would like to fertilize the Creeping Jenny without fertilizing weeds…since basically Creeping Jenny is a weed itself. The photo is from May 2016.
Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance for your help!

In the early spring you can use a pre emergent, but this is only a small time frame in the spring. If you use a post emergent or weed and feed this would likely kill the Creeping Jenny.
