    I've just planted a couple of beds of annuals and didn't lay in any Snapshot for fear of retarding the growth of these young plants.

    Any comments either way? How long should I wait before applying the Snapshot?

    Where I live Snapshot, or Crapshot as I call it doesn't even work! I use Norosac in the Fall.

    I would not recommend it. I've got some here on my mulch beds at my home. The wife and i go to the flower place so she can add color to the front of the house and after all that planting they all died except the dusty millers. She was mad! So I didn't tell her about the snapshot and said they must of been planted to close together and she believed it. Off the hook

    I checked the label again for XL 2G at and it lists many annuals as safe for treatment. You may want to look that one over. I've used it safely over annuals for years without any phyto. Label calls for 200# max. per acre (4.6# 1000/sq. ft.) for landscape plantings. Neal
