    I am looking for a product to control various weeds and grasses in a bed with horizontal junipers. Also have a major problem with wild onion. I was considering using a 3way or speedzone for the wild onion. I also thought about using paramitol 25E. What do you guys find best and seems to last the longest. Also safe on the Junipers.

    Read the label!! 3 way isn't labeled for use over junipers, and Pramitol is a non selective contact killer that will also sterilize the soil for a year. The label will answer all your questions. Poast and Image are two herbs that can be used on most junipers for selective control.

    Thanks for the reply. I cannot read a label I do not have. Yes I know about reading labels. The Paramitol I was not intending to use in the area around the Junipers.
