Pat from Simpsonville, Sc writes

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.
