Pre-emergent in South Florida
When the weather turns and I get 5 days in a row with out dipping out of the 50s is when I am supposed to put down a pre-emergent. That is about 2 weeks away, or so. Extension states 1st week of Feb for my location.
Can I put the pre-emergent down early and if so, how early?
We will not get any substantial rain for about 3-4 months, so it wont wash away. Tonight it should get into the upper 20s, then warm up so the low will be in the 40s-50s.
Could I put the pre-emergent down now? I will be spraying it on, surflan (the orange stuff). If I put it down now, watered it in and then turn off the sprinkler system till it warms up, whats the harm?
Any thoughts or ideas about this?
