Maple Seedlings in the Hosta Garden
Ok, these Maple Seedlings are driving me BONKERS!
Since it seems we've had the perfect year for them, I now have THOUSANDS in my beds and in the lawn. I know in the lawn, normal mowing gets rid of them.
Q1: But is there an FAST way to get them out of my hosta beds? My first garden party is in 2 weeks and I simply cannot spend an entire day picking these out (they are quite easy to pick) and then have to deal with my back for the next 2 days.
Q2: How do I prevent this next year? Does Preen prevent tree seedlings? If so, is it best to put down the treatment just as the snow is melting or last thing in the fall?
Please no smart- alec remarks about me being a baby about this. Our late spring has my days numbered and my to-do list longer than my days! And if the dang rain would just hold up a bit!
