How long after applying Preen can I plant?
In respect to this, how long does preen last?
One may also ask, when should you not use preen? Preen should not be used on flower seeds. It can be used after flowering plants have germinated and are 2 – 3 inches tall. Preen may also be incorporated into the soil when seeding vegetables or applied after mulching beds. By applying Preen as early as possible, you can eliminate the need for hand-weeding.
Similarly, you may ask, can you use preen around new plants?
Preen is safe to use in flower gardens once plants are established. Label instructions suggest using the product after ornamental flowers, grasses and shrubs are at least 3 inches in height. Flower seeds sown into the garden after an application of Preen will not germinate.
Is preen harmful to plants?
Preen is a pre-emergent herbicide that kills germinating seeds. It will not harm vegetable seedlings or kill established weeds. When Preen is spread evenly over the soil, it forms a chemical barrier that will prevent most weed seeds from emerging.
