This contains Gallery, a pre-emergent herbicide for control of certain broadleaf weeds and suppression of annual grasses in established turfgrass and landscape ornamentals. Apply in late summer to early fall, in early spring, or anytime prior to germination of target weeds.
Ferti•lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery controls weeds germinating from seed. Ferti•lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery does not control established weeds. Existing weeds should be controlled with post-emergent herbicides. To insure optimal herbicidal response, water treated areas as soon as possible after application. A single rainfall or sprinkler irrigation of 0.5 inch or more is required to activate this product.
Do not apply more than 19 lbs. of Ferti•lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery per 1,000 sq. ft.
Apply Ferti•lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery using a drop or rotary-type spreader designed to apply granular fertilizer. Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to manufacturer’s directions. Check frequently to be sure equipment is working properly and distributing granules uniformly. Do not use spreaders that apply material in narrow concentrated bands. Avoid skips or overlaps as poor weed control or plant injury may occur. More uniform application may be achieved by spreading half of the required amount of product over the area and then applying the remaining half in swaths at right angles to the first. When using a drop-type spreader, a splash board mounted below the release point will provide more even granule distribution.

I purchased the pre-emergence weed control to combat spotted spurge because of the water restrictions in the Palm Springs CA area. Warning-the bag has no directions on what setting to set the spreader and the help desk has no idea what setting. Their recommended setting covered less than 2500 ft instead of 5000 ft. Let the buyer beware.
Thank you for your feedback! We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience. Unfortunately, there are so many spreaders on the market that it is impossible for manufacturers to have a complete list of recommended settings. Also, keep in mind that different people walk at different paces. For these reasons, we highly recommend calibrating your spreader your needs. Otherwise, you should always start with the lowest setting on your spreader and adjust from there. You can view a helpful video about calibrating your spreader here:
Pre-emergent other than corn gluten is hard to find these days but it's worth it. We've used it for a few years now and it does a good job of keeping our neighbors' 10,000 dandilions out of our yard. Much better than weed-n-feed POST-emergent.
First year we used this product, we saw a significant reduction in weeds. Have used this product for years now and can say honestly it has saved many hours of backbreaking weeding. Would heartily recommend this product.
I use this product at my home in VA on my fescue and at my Dad's in GA on his Bermuda/centipede. It has saved me more hous in weeding than I can say. I apply it in VA in Early winter, spring, and sometimes summer. I used to have seas of chickweed, lespedeza, blossom weed, spurge, corn speedwell, dandelions- you name it. Not now. Tip- apply two strips on edges. They get the wear and that's the weak link. I did Dad's house in GA for the first time this year. This product has is the only ingredient that the extension site says stops chamberbitter. We will see! I am also hoping it helps with Carolina Geranium too. I will update this later to say. Shipping from this site was great. Prompt and well packed.
Which is a better pre-emergeent herbicide between Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery and XL 2G?
I already plan to use Dimension (Pennington's) for crabgrass prevention.
As far as effectiveness, both the Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery and the XL 2G will give you exceptional results on broadleaf weed and some annual grass control. The Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery is my personal preference because of the great price. It's the most bang for your buck. However, to give you more of a precise answer we would need to know the weeds you are wanting to kill and where you plan on using the pre-emergent.
Can applying Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery keep Chamber Bitter from growing in my Fescue lawn? I live in Raleigh, NC and would like to know if this will work.
We have spoken with the manufacturer of Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery and they have confirmed that it will work for Chamber Bitter but that is a very difficult weed to control. The active ingredient Isoxaben is the only pre-emergent that is labeled to control it though.
What time of year do you apply Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery for Burweed control in SC?
Could you please give me an idea of when to apply Gallery for control of Burweed in upstate (Greenville area) South Carolina? I believe I am in zone 7.
According to an article by the Clemson Cooperative Extension, you would want to apply Ferti-Lome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery during the winter months of December, January, & February. The weed is smaller and easier to control during this time of year and has not yet developed the spine-tipped burs. Control is not impossible in March, April, & May, but the spines have already formed by this time and will remain after the weed dies. Because lawn burweed is a winter annual, it will begin to die in late spring as air temperatures reach 90 degrees F. Once the weed has reached a more mature state, multiple herbicide applications may be necessary which increases the potential for turfgrass injury.
