pre-emergent before lilies sprout?

tess_2008March 24, 2009

I would like to know if it is OK to put a pre-emergent - such as Preen - in a mixed border that contains asiatics and orientals and iris. The bulbs have not sprouted, but the iris have. I have read other sites but it is never clear to me whether people are talking about grown plants versus bulbs that have not sprouted. Thanks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

i've been against using pre-emergant anywhere but my lawn. the natural balance is hard enough to maintain in my garden.
