    sure but the guy was just stated what works for him and maybe others. I like Pre-M better for weeds then Dim..

    White Gardens, not real sure what your talking about?!? If your going to attempt to slam somebody you should bring sound science and logic to your argument. Pre-M is something I use, and it works for me. you dont have to use it. IS the climate in Bloomington, IL even remotely close to New Orleans? Probably not, just like green doctor uses flowable ronstar. I have used fert with ronstar many times, but would never use flowable. Our climate isnt conducive to it. Its a product that probably works great for him not me.

    That one word is what I was referring to. Makes it sound like he wasn't concerned with the label and it's directions. Yes he might just making a general statement but it can be taken the wrong way, and maybe I did.

    I use Pre-Em for my beds, never said it was a "bad" thing.
