Gail from Spanish Fort, Al writes,

What is the application rate for Fertilome Broadleaf Weed control?

It is labeled for use under and around shrubs, but I can only find application rate for rotary spreader on turf. I need to apply around established shrubs in a large bed by hand to avoid getting product on shrub surface. Can you give me some guidance on how much to apply?


We would recommend using the Gordons Spred- Rite G Gravity Flow Granule Spreader. The flow of granules is controlled by orifice disks and the exclusive deflector plate. The spreader carries 5 pounds of granules and functions by gravity. Swath widths can be adjusted from 2 to 4 inches and up to 3 feet. Rate can be easily varied by adjusting walking speed, by shifting swath width, and by choice from 3 orifices. A minimum rate of 4.6lb of Fertilome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery per 1,000sq feet is recommended for optimum results, so depending on how big the large bed is determines how much you will need to adjust for your application. You may contact the manufacturer VPG at 1-888-583-5296 for specific application rates.
