    Hi, folks. Does anyone have any experience with Atrimmec on aggressive shrubs like Eleagnus? I added a new large commercial account this year and was starting to get over my head with all the shrub trimming. So I bought Atrimmec at $250/gal hoping I would save that in labor costs. So far I'm getting very poor results on the Eleagnus. The variegated privets, wax ligustrum and hollies are responding well, but the real thorn in my side is the Eleagnus. Any input is appreciated.

    I seem to remember having good luck with Embark a few years ago. I'm not doing that account anymore but with so many shrubs, we had alot of success with Embark. I just don't remember every variety of shrub that it worked with. I know it was more than was labeled. Have you ever tried ?
