What?


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.
