I'm planting a 15 gallon black gum tree. Will it harm the new tree to apply Prodiamine around the new tree area?
While Prodiamine 65 WDG (Generic Barricade) is safe for most trees, Black Gum is not listed as a tolerable species. We would suggest applying outside the drip line of the tree to ensure proper root growth. The product label states at the bottom of page 12 : after application (immediately for deciduous plants) apply overhead irrigation to wash PRODIAMINE 65 WDG from plant surfaces onto soil (watering plants before application may improve the washing process).
