Re: Weed control

Roundup works great. I use it all winter to kill winter annuals and hope
to spray some this weekend.

Bob Solberg has mentioned that roundup doesn't seem to bother hostas
much. I would still try not to get any on hostas leaves. I sprayed some
daffodils in a hosta bed 4 weeks ago. Roundup doesn't seem to hurt daffs
much. I can not tell I sprayed them. The weeds have changed color from
green to almost yellow.

Alex Summers sprayed 15 gallons of Roundup on his hosta beds just this
past week. Alex mixes his almost double strength. I mix mine single
strength. We both buy Roundup by the 2.5 gallon bottle and it cost about
+ACQ-90.  I use about 3 oz. per gallon. The 2.5 gallon bottles are more
concentrated than what you buy at the garden center.(I am not talking
about the pre-mixed)

I have been meaning to start a thread on this very topic. How timely.

+AD4-I just took a look at an area in which, in haste, last fall I planted
+AD4-rows of hostas (and peonies) which I divided.  No hostas or peonies
yet, but
+AD4-lots of grass and weeds making it look nice and green.  Question:  Can
I use
+AD4-Round-Up on this area before the hostas emerge?  Or am I faced with a
+AD4-breaking weekend of pulling weeds?  If Round up can be used, how early
+AD4-how late?  Our days are warming up (50 in the sun today) nights are
+AD4-(30ish) , daffs. out 1+ACI-.
