Herbicide-treated pine bark mulch for containerized ornamentals

Proceedings, Southern Weed Science Society, 39th annual meeting: 185
Herbicide-treated pine bark mulch for containerized ornamentals
Up to 4 times conventional rates of pre-em. herbicides were sprayed on to pine bark at a rate of 1 quart solution/3 gal bark; the bark was mixed and allowed to stand for several days to absorb the herbicide and partially dry out before being applied to ornamentals at 1.5 cups/1-gal container. Injury to ornamentals was not excessive and weed control was greatly extended. The cost of the high herbicide rates was offset by not having to re-treat.
