Do you have particular pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides you would recommend in planting beds for plant material installed last Fall? They need to be child and pet safe within a few days time.

Greetings Debbie:

Unfortunately, I do not have enough information to answer this question. What specific type of plants are you trying to establish and what specific type of weeds are you trying to suppress? What "kind" of planting beds are we talking about--tree nursery beds? If tree nursery beds, what kind of trees?

Questions need to be very specific, especially when asking for herbicide recommendations.
