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 The plants are always greener on the Preener side My aging body is so grateful for Preen. A quick application prevents hours of back-breaking, knee aching weeding as I found out a few years ago. Preen was introduced to me by my Sister-in-Law and I've been a fan ever since. I am thrilled to see that Preen has tailored their weed preventer to the different regions in the US. I lay down the first application in early spring, another at the start of summer and the final application goes on in early fall. I would estimate that my weeding time has been reduced by 75%; in my opinion, Preen is worth every cent. Aside from Preen working incredibly well, the application of Preen takes just minutes thanks to the built in applicator spout (no spreaders needed). I've included a photo of the innovative spout so you can see it in action. Once the spout is open and the Preen starts flowing, simple move the bottle back and forth, applying a generous coat (about 10-12 granules per size of a US Quarter). Try to avoid applying to plant roots or it could damage or kill the plants you are trying to protect. Water in the Preen directly after the application. That is it! I will caution you that Preen creates a protective top layer in the soil which prevents seeds from growing into weeds for up to three months. Unfortunately, Preen will mistake your plant seeds for weed seeds so do not apply to seeded gardens until your plants become established. Because Preen creates a protective top layer in your soil, disturbing the Preened soil may allow weeds to grow in the disturbed area. Note, there are a few vegetable seeds that will grow in Preened soil so if in doubt, refer to the directions or Preen's website before you apply this product. Preen will not kill existing weeds, you must remove the existing weeds, then Preen for a weed-free experience. I highly recommend Preen and will continue to use this product for years down the road.

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.]
