Product Details

Weeds can ruin a garden in a variety of ways. Weeds can hog all of the nutrients given out by your compost and soil, causing your plants, fruits and veggies to suffer as a result. Weeds can also crowd out your plants and confine them to a space that will not allow them to grow and flourish. Concern Weed Prevention Plus for gardens uses the power of corn gluten to prevent weeds from sprouting and robbing your plants of valuable nutrients. Stop weeds and dandelions before they start with this natural product. The Concern Weed Prevention Plus harnesses the power of corn gluten meal (100%), creating a powerful weed prevention fertilizer. Up to 90% effective weed control in the first year on dandelions and crabgrass. For use in flower gardens, vegetable gardens and in landscaped areas around trees, shrubs and ornamentals. Will not burn. Concern Weed Prevention Plus is composed of 100% granulated corn gluten meal. Children and pets can play on the lawn immediately after application since Concern weed prevention plus kills only the root of sprouting seeds, it can be used with confidence around established plants, including transplants, flower beds, shrubs and roses. When your flower or vegetable sprouts have true leaves, it is safe to apply Weed Prevention Plus even up until the day of harvest.
  • Prepare garden bed by turning under or pulling established leaves, then sprinkle around bedding plants, flowers or shrubs
  • Lawn spread weed prevention plus evenly over lawn grass by hand or in a spreader
  • Apply 5 lbs. per 250 sq. ft (25 ft. x 10 ft.) to turf or garden soil, if you choose you can use twice the recommended rate for even better control with no fear of burning your plants

Q:can it stop violet seeds from sprouting in my lawn? I am looking for a pre emergent.

Answer This Question

A:  This product will prevent seeds from sprouting.

by|May 6, 2023

    A:  It's a pre-emergent Weed Killer. I'm not sure violets are weeds. Call manufacturer and ask. As I've said before if you can see the weeds, it's too late for this product. You need round up. In Phoenix I apply January and July yearly and never have weeds.

      A:  I don't know about violet seeds but it did stop the weeds I had sprouting and it has kept them from sprouting.

      by|May 6, 2023

        A:  Yes. We use it in the front yard and it kills all weeds.

        by|May 6, 2023

          A:  Yes, this product works on violets and is a pre-emergent.

            A:  Yes, the first lawn application should be early in the spring, 3-5 weeks before weeds begin to sprout. The product can then be re-applied in the late summer when temperatures turn cooler to control the late season weeds.

                A:  CAREFUL, they probably will love to eat this. It's made from corn and is crunchy. Bag says safe for people, pets and wildlife. So many wild birds gather after I spread this, I've hung scare balloons. They still come in to crunch on it but no where near as many. Never found a dead bird in my neighborhood.......................Raymond

                          A:  I think it kills everything. PS: You do realize this is a PRE emergent weed killer. If you can SEE the weed or grass it's too late for this and you need to use round up first to kill what you can see. PROS: I live in Phoenix and spread this in January and July every year and weeds don't even sprout. Don't need to use dangerous round up to kill existing weeds, there are none, ever. Safe for citrus trees and other animals. Made from natural crunchy corn type product. CONS: Morning doves find it a delicious, crunchy corn treat and show up with extended families to eat after you spread it. I've had to hang scary eye bird balloons and reflective tape to prevent nest building in my citrus trees. Does not seem to harm the birds at all.

                            A:  I've used this product for a couple years now on Zoysia grass. Couldn't speak for Fescue. But unlike single nutrient fertilizers, it's a good alternative for adding organic matter naturally to the lawn as it breaks down.

                              A:  I used this product at the beginning of spring, just when the weeds started growing. I notice the birds and squirrels eating most of it.

                              by|May 5, 2023

                                A:  Yes, this is weed prevention. but if you seed your lawn, this will prevent grass seeds from establishing as well.
