PREEN and all the other "weed preventers" can kill some
types of plants. Swan Island Dahlias warns Dahlia growers
NEVER to use any type of herbicides around Dahlias.
You should ALWAYS read the label before applying anything
around your plants.
I used PREEN&GREEN this year for the first time and I have to say I really
love this stuff. I applied it after I mulched then watered it in twice.
Once one day then a little more the next. Re-applied after one month right
before a rain. I cannot speak about the effect of the slow release
fertilizer but I can say I have darn near zero weeds and my flowers are
doing quite well. The annuals I used it on are in the same beds as
perrenial flowers and shrubs like lilies, asytum (sp), Azelia, Holley, and
Stella-Dorra Lily. Make sure you weed very well and chop up the soil before
Next year I think I'll try just the straight PREEN and see if there is a
differance. I'll either fertilize with a watering can or buy a seperate
slow release fertilizer.
Best of Luck!

it works great on grass, but really only in the spring when the weed seeds are
germinating. I sure wouldnt use it anywhere you want flower seeds to
many of mine come back every year from seeds. Ingrid
