The last thing we want is viable weed seeds to spread to our gardens. Now is the time to apply Preen to keep late-season, winter annuals at bay. Here are five reasons to apply Preen Garden Weed Preventer or Preen Southern Weed Preventer between now and mid fall. Always read and follow the label directions.
- Winter annuals are sneaky plants with seeds adept at hiding in the soil, only to germinate and emerge late in the fall and reach maturity by the time spring arrives.
- In Spring, we are all busy spiffing up the landscape after its winter rest. An application of Preen in early fall reduces weed-pulling chores, and prevents competition for spring-blooming bulbs and perennials.
- Ugly brown weeds next to the tulips? I don’t think so. Preen prevents weed seeds from germinating, eliminating the time-consuming need to spray and then pull them when they are dead. And with Preen’s Battery-Powered Spreader Cap, you don’t even have to shake the bottle.
- An application of Organic Preen Vegetable Garden Weed Preventer reduces unwanted competition for your late-season veggies, including lettuces, spinach, and broccoli. Organic Preen Vegetable Garden Weed Preventer (now available in 25-pound bags) is 100% corn gluten, safe for use around food and pets. Apply when seedlings are 3” tall and delete “weed worry” from your to-do list.
- You already use Preen? What about your neighbors? Countless weed seeds get blown in from nearby lawns and gardens and settle in your landscape. Preen forms a protective barrier that lasts three to four months, to keep the weeds from germinating in your garden.
