When do the Forsythia bloom


Forsythia are what I am using to gauge when to put down my pre emergent. I have been looking at them and I am noticing little green leaves are starting to pop out. When is it considered blooming, when the yellow leaves start to show? I am putting down corn gluten so I need to time things properly.

They are supposed to bloom before they leaf out. The unusual weather has many plants confused. They are just now starting to flower here.

When do the Forsythia bloom


Are you putting it down for crab-grass? I'm not sure where to find Forsythia, so I used the other gage -- when soil temp reaches 55 degrees. I am across the river from you, and last year I put the corn gluten down on April 27. Seems a little late according to the Forsythia gage, but I was actually worried I put it down too early, so I spread another batch on June 1.
But it worked great. I just need it along the one property line. My one neighbor's lawn is full of crabgrass, and its a struggle to keep it off of my lawn.

following the 20 pounds per 1000 sf I will be spending around 300 bucks. Then I want to do the beds and my neighbors shared front yard because he has a great deal of crabgrass as well. This will be my first year doing this myself and being 100% chemical free.
