Sheila from Magnolia, Ms writes,

Which Product is safe for roses, shrubs?

What product is safer to use in areas where I need to control the growth of weeds in crushed limestone walkways that surround a rose garden and shrubs?


Pramitol would not be a good choice to use around desirable plants as it is a soil sterilant and will likely kill any plant near soil that is treated with the product. You can spot treat the weeds with a glyphosate product such as RoundUp QuickPro as long as you careful to avoid spraying the desirable plants. Grass Out Max would be a good choice if you are dealing with grassy weeds and do not want to spot treat  because it can be sprayed around flowers and shrubs to get rid of grassy weeds without worry of harming the desirable plants as long as it used as specified on the product label.
