Now that it's officially spring here in the Northeast we're getting tons of weeds. But I've been using Preen successfully for years. It's not meant to kill weeds but prevent them. I use it sparingly after the first use of the year. Does anyone have a successful schedule of using it apart from the directions on the container. Thanks everyone. www.homerepairtutor.com

I've used it AFTER weeding by hand-sowing it around the plants. I have had pretty good luck
that. This result happened in only one day. I brushed Roundup on some liriope volunteers over two weeks ago and they're just now puny and can be easily pulled out of the ground, but none are truly DEAD like in this photo. Will this be safe, do you think, if I put it on liriope volunteers and other weeds in my front yard? The yard has tree mulch, no grass, but lots of hostas, some hellebores, ferns, azaleas and other things. Guess I'd need to spray directly onto the potential victims, or brush it on with a sponge brush?

I too have liriope. It is not a weed, however, it is quite invasive. I'm going to try the
vinegar to see if it works. Maybe will try it on spiderwort "babies" too.
