    Sorry about the spelling but this shrub is growing like crazy. I am having a hard time keeping up with all of them. I just trimmed all of them 2 weeks ago on all my propertys. Now they need trimming again. The shrub loves the warmer temps.

    Atrimmec works well to slow them down

    Noticed the same thing today. The V.O.'s & V.S.'s have spring growth. So I pick up some pgr's on the way back to the shop.

    Told our spray tech I wanted pgr's and pre-emergents applied in the next 10 days.

    Our last frost date is a few weeks away. But the plants and the fish are showing signs that spring is coming.

    X10. Its the only way to keep maintaining them profitable. On the flip side they are cheap when a customer is looking for a fast growing privacy screen.

    Will embark work well? I found embark on amazon for $85. How many oz in these bottles of atrimec. I might try it to see if it works well. Very expensive stuff

    Embark dose work well on them. Embark is a gallon and atrimmec is a quart they cover about the same area. Atrimmec is our go to pgr. However we use all 3 embark, atrimmec and cutless depending what the plant is we are trying to regulate.

    This a great chart

    Plus a billion :) . This stuff is worth every penny vs the potential labor you are going to spend trimming and cleaning up. The most affordable price for me is by the gallon vs the quart. I know I will go threw it, but if you have just a few here or there start with the quart.
