If Preen is your go-to brand to stop garden weeds before they start – or you've been thinking of trying it out this year, why not also try… another Preen? Yes, there are several formulations of Preen, and each kind is identified by its color-coded applicator cap.
Many gardeners are familiar with the famous yellow Preen bottle with its easy-to-use, flip-top red shaker-cap. But take a look next time you’re at your favorite garden retailer, you’ll see other yellow Preen bottles with blue caps, green caps, and purple caps, too.
The blue cap is Preen Garden Weed Preventer with a cool new battery-powered spreader cap, which comes with Preen Southern Weed Preventer too. This is the Preen most people know that stops weeds before the seeds germinate for up to 3 or 4 months per application. The optional spreader cap has a battery-powered fan built in. This makes applying this granular product even faster and easier, distributing it precisely and evenly. It’s also perfect for applying Preen quickly across broad areas, and evenly in tight spaces around and under flowering plants, trees, and shrubs. The spreader cap runs efficiently on minimal battery power, typically providing months of usage. The bottle is refillable, and when spent, the batteries are replaceable.
The green capped bottle contains a different Preen product: Preen Garden Weed Preventer Plus Plant Food. This two-in-one product is designed to save gardeners’ time by simultaneously delivering Preen weed preventer granules with an added, balanced 6-8-6 garden fertilizer already mixed in. In one easy application, you can stop weeds before they start, give flowering plants a boost, and help all your plants build strong roots for better heat and drought tolerance, plus improved overall performance. Preen Southern Weed Preventer Plus Plant Food is formulated especially for southern gardens.
The purple cap denotes Preen Natural Vegetable Garden Weed Preventer, (previously called Preen Vegetable Garden Organic Weed Preventer) a granular formula of corn gluten for easy shaker-application.
So if you like Preen products, why not give another Preen a try this spring? Just look for the color-coded caps. And while you're at it, check out Preen landscape fabric and lawn weed control as well as other Preen weed control products. At Lowe’s coast-to-coast, you'll find Preen Mulch with Extended Control Weed Preventer, a premium hardwood mulch with added Preen weed preventers already mixed in.
