heres another different one, I use alot of PRE-M. Alot of people think it is harsh on plant but I have never had any issues. and its cheap.

There is a reason for max application rates, and that's soil toxicity. Nothing to do with the plants, but for all wildlife and pets around homes.

I use most of the ones mentioned except for Pre M and I use Ronstar Flo. Knowing what target weeds and which plants may be treated safely with each is another story. For most ornamental areas not planted with annuals, I like Dimension + Gallery. Yes, this is expensive. But not as expensive as a control failure.

Just curious how much you are paying, we use Dimension 2EW and Gallery 75DF.

White Gardens, not real sure what your talking about?!? If your going to attempt to slam somebody you should bring sound science and logic to your argument. Pre-M is something I use, and it works for me. you dont have to use it. IS the climate in Bloomington, IL even remotely close to New Orleans? Probably not, just like green doctor uses flowable ronstar. I have used fert with ronstar many times, but would never use flowable. Our climate isnt conducive to it. Its a product that probably works great for him not me.

That one word is what I was referring to. Makes it sound like he wasn't concerned with the label and it's directions. Yes he might just making a general statement but it can be taken the wrong way, and maybe I did.

I use Pre-Em for my beds, never said it was a "bad" thing.
