When To Use Crabgrass Preventer

Question From: J. Markiewicz - MICHIGAN
Q: When will be the best time to put my crabgrass preventer this year? Thank you for your reply.

A: Crabgrass is an annual and the seed sprouts when the soil temperatures reach 50 degrees. That's usually around the middle of April to the first of May. Mother Nature's indicator is when the forsythia blooms. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
