Does preen or corn gluten work?
As the post asks has anyone gotten good results with Preen? If not specifically Preen, a generic form of corn gluten? Correct me if I listed the wronge ingredient. I think that is what is in Preen. I have something growing with my Tomatoes and it has many seeds on it and it would be hard to pull out and not affect the Tomatoes. I think it is in the same family as tomatoes and peppers. I'm guessing. I have a weed book and I THINK it is rtelated to them. Anyhoo. Is Preen or generic equivalent affective. I would try it next spring. If not or regardless, if I put a layer of straw (dry) and burned it on the surface of the soil would I destroy alot of these seeds. When I try to remove the seeds, handling the plant makes the seeds rain down on the soil. The area most affected is 2 semi-raised beds, about 4 X 6. I think surface burning may help. Am I right. Even if I don't use the Preen for veg beds, I have other areas I may try if it works good.
