Defeat Your Crabgrass Early with Dyna Green



Get ahead of the crabgrass battle in your lawn this spring. Here is the know-how from Hummert’s own Dan Bartles in Topeka: The typical window to apply Dyna Green Crabgrass Preventor is Mid-March to Mid-April. Since this year is unseasonably warm, the window this year should be March 1 until the middle part of April. Dyna Green uses the commercial rate of Dimension to provide you with maximum protection against crabgrass in your yard. One added feature of Dyna Green Crabgrass control with Dimension is that it has post germination control of crabgrass up to the 2-3 leaf stage. So, if you don't get it down before crabgrass germinates, you can still get some control with this product!

March Birth Flowers

The March birth flowers are really one in the same. The daffodil, or Narcissus, symbolizes new beginnings, rebirth, and the end of winter. The Jonquil, or Narcissus jonquilla, is an old world variety of daffodil. This variety is yellow, white, or a combination of both and so fragrant the oil from the flower is used as perfume. They symbolize sorrow and to convey sympathy.
