in a small area around my mailbox i had some trouble with weeds, so i added some preen (alot) to the soil and a few weeks later i planted some daisy's. well the daisys quickly died so i planted some marigolds, well they died too. next i planted black eyed susans, now they lasted a little longer than the others but they to are starting to croak. could it be the preen? did i add to much and now the soil is poisoned? thistle are still popping up but not as many just a few (for now)
will the black eyed susan be able to reseed itself? or will the preen prevent the black eyed susan seeds from germinating next spring?

I've never used Preen. But as I recall from various discussions, the instructions say to apply several weeks -- 3? -- after you plant whatever. If so, no wonder your plants croaked.

Hmmm. Sounds like one of those life lessons: Live and learn. :>)
