What was the name of the herbicide Dave was talking about in the podcast? I'd like to look into it a little more. This was a great podcast by the way. I studied horticulture in college in the 70's and Integrated Pest Management was a big deal then-something I have always tried to apply. Natural is best, but only if it works in your situation Smiling
Thanks!

Hi Deb,

The herbicide I was talking about is oryzalin. It's definitely an interesting thing.

I also really appreciate your in depth discussion regarding oryzalin. I am one of THOSE people that are totally against chemicals in the garden. It was interesting to learn a little bit about something that may not be so harmful.
Thanks @dave

I'm the same as you, Toni, which makes my reading up on oryzalin all the more interesting. Smiling

It's found in the product Surflan which is a water-based low-VOC pre-emergent herbicide.
