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.

4.25 lb. Southern Weed Preventer Bottle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product Keeping up with the weeds in my garden use to be a full time job (in addition to my real full time job) Since using Preen I have a lot more free time and a lot less weeds to worry about. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this has changed my gardenening experience Preen has changed not only how i garden but my gardening experience. I do not spend hours pulling out stubborn southern weeds. I sprinkle out the preen product directly onto my flower beds. That's it. The weeds have ben reduced to almost none. I may have to pull 1 or 2 per bed per month. Really that's it! Preen products have become a normal routine for me and changed how i feel about gardening. I have added more decorative areas to my yard since the need to weed is so limited.

Preen was used prior to laying down plastic barrier sheeting which was covered by mulch to front yard landscape. All weeds were pulled prior to preen application and directions followed on preen container. Before I could finish the landscaping not even 2wks, Weeds were coming at a fast rate so I had pulled weeds and roots so landscape could be weedless And finishing my landscaping took two weeks I don't think Preen was worth buying so I bought round up so when I see weeds coming I will drown them with Round up

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product without hassels Due to ultra sensitive skin, I cannot be in the sun too long nor exposed to strong yard chemicals. Preen Southern Weed Preventer is a great product for both issues. It's easy and quick to use and--because it is not a spray solution - I don't have to worry about chemicals getting on my skin. Beyond those two features, it works on stubborn Southern weeds. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A weed-killing wonder! I use this Preen Southern Weed Preventer around my shrubs and bushes to keep the weeds from taking over and it works great. Very easy to apply - after applying it, water it in and let it dry. Works great! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
