After planting begonias in a flower bed and waiting several days to apply Preen, do I have to be careful not to get Preen on the plants? The plants are planted about 5" apart and there are 7 flats planted so sprinkling from the product container would definitely get Preen on the plants. Suggestions?

I've found it much more dangerous to use around plants, like tomatoes, grown from seed and still so vulnerable. To protect your begonias, go slowly and use a box (even a shoebox will do) to protect each plant's leaves as you spread the Preen.

The warning label says don't get Preen on the plant leaves. But, if you apply Preen when the plants are dry, you can brush or shake it off before watering the Preen in.
