The Q&A Archives: Weed Killer

Question: I planted dicondra between flagstone this Spring which grew well but with quite a variety of weeds. I spent 4 hours yesterday removing weeds. Is there a weed killer product that will keep the weeds away and not harm the dicandra? Or am I destined to continue weeding?

Answer: Dichondra is extremely sensitive to weed killers so I'm afraid you'll need to pull out the existing weeds by hand. Once you've removed the weeds you can use a corn gluten meal based pre emergence product such as WOW. Pre emergence products keep weed seeds from germinating. There are several brands on the market. Be sure to apply according to label directions.
