Preen is a concentrated organic fertilizer that can be used on gardens, trees, shrubs, and flowers. It is safe for both indoor and outdoor use. Preen contains earthworm castings, bat guano, and other natural ingredients to fertilize your garden. This fertilizer works well in flower beds, vegetable gardens, and anywhere else you want to boost your plants.
When To Use Preen?
Before using preen in your garden, it is essential to get to know, when to use preen.
Best Time To Use Preen In Garden
- The best time to apply preen is when the temperature is above 5°C (41°F).
- The ideal temperature for applying preen is between 10°C (50°F) and 20°C (68°F).
- Below 10°C (50°F), the worms may not be able to move about freely enough for the preen to be effective; above 20°C (68°F), they may become too active and burrow deeper into their holes, making it difficult for them to come back out again.
Different Preens May Use At Different Times
Different types of weed control require different times of year to be used. For example, preen can be used in spring after the last frost date but not before because it will kill newly germinating plants. Preen can be used anytime throughout the summer until fall when temperatures drop below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15 degrees Celsius). In colder climates, you will want to wait until spring when temperatures are above freezing before using preen on any grasses or weeds because these plants may still not have grown enough roots for adequate absorption of this herbicide.
Application Of Preen
Preen solution should be applied evenly over the soil surface, avoiding getting it on desirable plants. Following the manufacturer’s instructions for application rates and methods is important.
Soil preparation Before Using Preen
Before applying the Preen solution, preparing the soil by removing any existing weeds or debris is important. This will help ensure the herbicide can reach the weed seeds and prevent them from germinating.
Reapplication Of Preen Solution
Preen solution typically lasts for several months but may need to be reapplied if new weed seeds are introduced to the area or if the soil is disturbed.
How Do You Use Organic Preen In Your Garden?
Organic Preen is made with all-natural ingredients, including minerals and amino acids from soybeans and alfalfa. That means it won’t harm the environment or your plants when you spread it around the yard.
Apply Preen according to the directions on the package. Apply 1/4 cup of Preen for every foot of plant height. For example, if you have a 3-foot tall rose bush, apply 1/2 cup of Preen around the base of the plant.
Water the soil thoroughly after applying Preen to ensure that it gets down into the soil where it can do its work.
Application Rate Of Preen In Garden
The application rate for Preen is just 2 ounces per gallon of water. It’s important to follow the directions on the label because different plants need different amounts of Preen. For example, you should use more or less on sandy soil than on clay soil. The label also tells you how much water you should add for each application method.
Your Garden Is Green Now
Preen can be used in gardens as a foliar spray or insecticidal soil drench. Spray directly onto plants or around the base of the plant to kill any insects that may be hiding there. You can also use Preen as a root drench by mixing it into the soil at planting time and watering it thoroughly so it doesn’t burn plant roots when applied directly onto them. This method works best if you have established plants that still need to grow vigorously from spring through fall when most pests are active and feeding on your plants’ foliage or roots.
