    Hey guys I did A search on creeping charlie and needed a little more reasurance do you guys think that applying Trimec 258 25-3-3 in mid may would be good at defending creeping charlie and keeping it to a min. or completely out of the picture for a year I'm learning more and more everyday any help would be awsome- thanks

    I suspect that granulars on any broadleaf weed will yield no results. I applied granular Momentum w/fert last May -- nothing. I sprayed Momentum in October, killed everything that it was supposed to. I can't speak for granular Trimec, but I would imagine the physics are the same as Momentum.

    That's a "no."

    The stuff is hard enough to kill with liquid herbicides. With granular, no chance.

    I tell my customers it dies really slowly. when the temps warm up it will die on it's own!

    most do not put down granular herbicide correctly, read the label, it should work better than you have described liquid is usually best though

    Granular won't touch it. With liquid, it sometimes takes me up to 3 aps (atLEAST two) - spaced at 2 week increments.
