    I've had good success with my lawn fertilizing and weed control(mainly centipede and zoysia) using Scott's products but need to find something to use in beds:shrubs,bushes,perennials,annuals,etc.Is there one product that would wotk for all of those plants?Anything that would provide systemic insect control ?Thanks.

    As for fert. I use a water sol. 20-20-20. It good for small shrubs as well as bedding plants.
    Merit is a good systemic insecticide.

    1/2 teaspoon Osmocote 14-14-14 mixed into each planting ho;e will give a great display all year.
