Crabgrass and Forsythia

Why is that you ask?

Because crabgrass germinates at the same time Forsythia blossoms drop-off, and it is important to have crabgrass control in place, and watered-in, ahead of that blossom drop.

   Crabgrass controls can also affect grass seed growth, so always read the label.

Keep in mind that some crabgrass controls (also known as pre-emergent herbicides) will restrict the growth of grass seed as well as crabgrass, so be sure to follow label directions for any product you apply!
