    Ive been hearing a lot of talk about growth regulators lately but, have never used them. I think using them would make my life a lot easier, and I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on where to start, what to buy, and would like to share any of their experience. Also on a side note does anyone have any advice for controlling crab grass in ornamental beds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I use Attrimec. Prune, wait a few days, 3-4 I think, and then spray. It's been so hot and dry this year that I haven't sprayed the first drop. The rates vary for different plants and each rate is listed on the label. Eleagnus is no longer a nuisance with growth reg.
