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.

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.]

Preen weed preventer If you have a weed problem, or you don’t want to get one--Use Preen! I’ve been using this product for 3 years now, and it works great. I always put it down before installing mulch or after pulling weeds to kill those annoying seeds that fall off the weeds when you pull them up! I’ve had great luck with it, as long as you put it down every few months. Way better then weed barrier fabric!!! Pros: *Inexpensive *Effective *Works as advertised *Great container design *Easy to apply Cons: *Dusty That’s it! If this review was helpful to you, please give it a thumbs up!

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Preen was used prior to laying down plastic barrier sheeting which was covered by mulch to front ... 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

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.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I have been using Preen Southern Weed Preventer for quiet some time. The product works great, before I was always weeding my garden. Now I just sprinkle the Preen in the flower bed and no weeds. I love it, it saves my back from all that bending over. Great product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
