Will this product kill the plants in my beds along with the weeds?

Asked by: james
James, I have not had any problem w/any die-off of other plants. To be fair, my Holly bushes are 5 years in the ground and pretty darn healthy. That is all I have in my beds where I treated that could be impacted. Hope that helps.

I have Chinese fringe shrubs and just finished pulling up all the clover in the beds that also have cypress mulch.

Is preen safe to use as I didn't see the shrub listed on the container.
Asked by: Wondering
I would guess yes. Don't know for sure, but so far it hasn't harmed anything I have.

4.25 lb. Southern Weed Preventer Bottle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 78.

I turned over about 1000 square feet of flower beds that were overgrown w/weeds (Houston, TX area). What that means is that I used up all the product in one pass. I treated the soil the day after turning. Because I had just tilled I expected all those live weeds to begin propagating almost immediately. That did not happen and after 3 weeks or so my dirt was still clean. (BTW, I did this in Winter knowing that I would not plant until Spring.) It's now about 6 weeks out and the dirt is still clean. I'm very pleased. My only concern, which, based on formulation, Preen says I do not have to worry about, is when I plant Asian Ivy and Dwarf Pittosporum in a couple of months, that they are not somehow impacted by this treatment. I'll follow up here at some point after planting. At this time I give Preen Weed Preventer 5 stars and recommend.

My flower beds stayed clean from weeds for at least 3 months then the weed started to show in some area. Make sure you pull out the weeds all the way to the root. I’m happy with the result comparing to many weed killer I've used that killed my plants and flowers too!
