Thanks Jeff
	I used roundup last year very early but it seems not early enough for
some. I noticed I had twisted hostas and daylilies for a good part of
the summer.
	Are the two chemicals you mentioned available from a garden center or
do I need to get them from a farm center for lack of a better
description. I have heard of surflan but I just haven't used that many
herbicides in recent years.
