Mimi's Rose Sale & Garden Tip #5 Pre-Emerge Weed Control for your Lawn


Now is the time to get rid of all those weeds in your yard, like crabgrass and any other unsitely weed, even though it's green, get rid of them using this Tonic! Do this as soon as possible in the spring, and apply any pre-emerge weed control Before 12 Noon and water with your 20 gal. hose-end sprayer. Remember this tonic recipe will cover a 2500 sf lawn. The following tonic will "Shine Up" your Landscape!

Please remember to use the 20 gal. hose-end sprayer you marked with the word "Warning" on it in red with nail polish and use this sprayer for insect or weed control only! If you didn't do this, then read this post and follow the directions please!

Here's the Pre-Emerge Weed Control Tonic ~ again you aren't going to believe how simple it is and what's in it ~ so here's the "recipe". This will really "Zing" the weeds!

Pre-Emerge Weed Control Tonic for Your Lawn:
1 Cup liquid dish soap or children's shampoo (this removes the seed shell protection from the weeds)
1 Cup of Hydrogen Perioxide
2 tbsp. Instant Tea
You can also add your favorite liquid pre-emerge control to this tonic.

If you prefer to use "dry" pre-emerge controls, you can add 1 Cup of "Dry Laundry" detergent to the purchased "dry" pre-emerge controls. This will also remove "seed shell" protection from the unsitely weeds in your lawn!

Again, apply this with the 20 gal. hose-end sprayer, marked with the word "Warning"before 12 Noon.

Also, just an update on a Sale I am having on my website ~ all the Vintage Yummy Confections Bakery Items are on sale now and will run thru the Month of April, 20% OFF. Many are priced under $10.00! These are the prettiest cupcakes, cakes and tea cakes you will find anywhere on the web. Here is a previous post about these yummy bakery items! Go look at the menu when you have a minute.

Have a wonderful day!
Mimi
