    Recently I bought some Maintain PGR and used it on some shrubs. It stops the growth just fine but things started getting ugly. The new growth got all curly and sick looking. Does anyone have experience with this product? How does Maintain compare with embark or others? Does Maintain work well on lawms or does it yellow the turf like embark does? After seeing what it did to my shrubs I am afraid to use this stuff. Any info would help. thanks in advance

    None here, what's the AI and %? Also, how soon after pruning, was it applied?

    The AI is Methyl Chlorflurenol 1 EC = 1lb. AI per gallon. Label rate for pgr use is only 1 teaspoon per gallon. Also it is labeled fof stopping fruit set on ornamenals if sprayed before flowering. I did not prune before spraying and some had 6 inches of new soft growth. This could be what went wrong. I should of spayed early or pruned back before spraying?
