FREE! Corn Gluten for Weed Prevention
by Claire T. on January 5th, 2014

We bought some corn gluten from The Natural Gardener a year or two ago, but seeing as we'd like to get rid of the rest of the lawn this year, there doesn't seem to be much point in spreading it out. Let me know if you'd like it.

It's almost the time of year to put it on your lawn for weed prevention, so I wanted to go ahead and offer it up. Here's some info from The Natural Gardener's January To-Do List Page about using it:

Buy corn gluten early in the month and have it ready to spread on your lawn and flower beds to help control spring weeds. You’ll want to apply it as soon as we get our first sunny, spring-like days. The change in soil temperature causes weeds to start sprouting, and that’s when you want to get ‘em! Corn gluten is a natural pre-emergent herbicide that’s an earth-friendly alternative to highly toxic “weed-n-feed” products. Corn gluten will keep your weed problem from spreading and it supplies your lawn a healthy dose of all-natural nitrogen. It’s critical to apply corn gluten at the right time of year. Usually the end of January or the first part of February is ideal but timing may vary a little from year-to-year, based on the weather. Remember: corn gluten keeps all seeds from sprouting, not just weeds, so be careful where you apply it.

Hi Claire,

We'll take it off your hands. But I'm curious. If you're getting rid of your lawn, wouldn't the corn gluten be helpful to you? Assuming that whatever you replace it with, there's still going to be dirt underneath. Anyway, if I haven't talked you out of it, PM me with details.

We'd love some, if there is some available. Been wanting to try corn gluten for a while.

Thanks, y'all! I've already had a taker for the corn gluten.
