+AD4-Concerning Preen hurting hostas.
+AD4-Sally Murphy wrote me and said she and Bob had been using Preen for 10
+AD4-years and it has worked fine. I believe Preen has the same active
+AD4-ingredient as the agricultural herbicide Treflan.
+AD4-My herbicide program:
+AD4-I have been using the pre emergent herbicide Surflan for the first time
+AD4-this year. It comes with a Turf and Ornamental label and has hostas
+AD4-listed right on the label. The application rate for hostas in 1.5 to 3
+AD4-ounces per 1000 square feet. It has directions for mixing Surflan and
+AD4-Roundup on the label and this is the mix I am going to use all summer.
+AD4-It is also labeled for container growing use. This Roundup/Surflan mix
+AD4-is only applied to weeds of course.
+AD4-This is a weed killing program with two methods of operation. The
+AD4-Roundup kills the living weeds. (it has been reported that Roundup may
+AD4-aid in the breaking of dormancy of weed seeds) The Surflan kills weed
+AD4-seeds in the soil when they germinate where the mix was sprayed to kill
+AD4-the live weeds.
+AD4-The Surflan in the mix gives anything sprayed an orange tint letting you
+AD4-know where you have sprayed.
+AD4-I know herbicides are a hot topic around here. I hope this starts a
