Hi John,
Thanks for the mention. Surflan and Roundup mixed sure work well for me too. I use 3 oz of Surflan and 12oz of Roundup in 4 gallons of water and spray this mix on 1,000 square feet. Heavier concentrations of Surflan keep weeds down for a longer time than lighter concentrations do. It's the same active ingredient that's in Preen I believe and if you're doing large areas it's much cheaper....like 1/10 the cost of Preen.
It's rumored that H. 'Patriot came from Surflan treated nursery beds of H. 'Francee'. Maybe it's true....maybe it's not...I don't know.

Thanks to Dan Nelson I have absolutely no weeds of any kind in about 2
acres of hosta beds! Dan recommended spraying hosta beds in November
with a mixture of Round-Up and Surflan; no harm done to the hostas at
all. It's such a wonderful sight to see weed free beds. Clia the Border
Collie continues to do her job well on keeping the deer away. This year
is shaping up to be a spectacular year for hostas with respect to
freezes. We have only one more area to fertilize (10-10-10). It's cheap
and does a wonderful job. I got this bit of information from the late
great Bob Savory of Minnesota.
