    I take care of a rose garden with almost 500 rosses, and since we have finally had rain this year, we now have WEEDS. Started using Breen, but thought to try Snapshot, but it doesn't say specifically for roses, has anybody out there used it around roses??? Thanks.

    It says it's for field and container-grown ornamentals, so I don't see why not. It is a pre-emergent, like Preen.

    I think Preen works pretty well. It will kill any small seedlings under 3 inches tall, AND inhibit ANY seeds from growing where you apply it but won't affect your established roses. You have to reapply every 3 months.
