Anyone used Preen to Suppress Weeds Around Peonies?

suel41452April 4, 2008

In the literature I got from Adelman Peony Gardens, they said it was OK to use "Preem" around peonies. I assume that's a typo, and I've never used Preen around them because peonies are not listed on the approved plant list on the package. Has anyone used Preen around peonies without harming them? Sue

I don't know anything about Preen, but I have had great results using only mulch. I just use a layer about 2 inches deep, have very few weeds, and my peonies seem to love it and are doing great. When they're mature, they shade the ground below and that helps as well.

I use PREEN, with the fertilizer, in my flower beds. The peonies get better every year!
