Tim from Springfield, Oh writes,
I have ornamental beds with flowers, shrubs, and trees what is the best pre- and post-emergent herbicide?
There are several mulched beds with different plantings. I have vincas, english ivy, hostas, tulips, daffodils, cone flowers, hydrangea, red maple trees evergreen bushes, juniper, yew, locust trees, redbuds, lily-of-the-valley, boxwoods, spruce trees, birch trees, and phlox. My biggest problem is honeysuckle, dandelions, and grass in the beds.
We do carry a great pre-emergent called Snapshot 2.5 TG and it's to treat weeds and annual grasses on ornamental beds. There really is nothing for post-emergence control though unless you spot treat with something like Roundup QuickPro for anything that has already emerged.
