Re: pre-emergent use
For a pre-emergent herbicide that has no toxic residues, try one of the
corn gluten products. Something in corn gluten inhibits seed germination,
which is great if you want to suppress weed seedlings. Don't use it in
beds where you plan to plant seed, however. But it should work great in
beds where you are using transplants, because the corn gluten has no
detrimental effect on plants.

We are in the planning process of preparing our vegetable garden for
spring. It has been suggested we put down the black plastic and then put
pine bark mulch on top of the plastic in order to hold moisture and
What about using pre-emergent in a vegetable garden? Is this safe to
apply? We would appreciate any recommendations you might offer.
