Use of pre-emergent in flower beds

Asked May 15, 2019, 2:59 PM EDT

Is there a suitable product to "eliminate" weed sprouting in flower bed? I am concerned that chemical will also kill desired plants; tulips, perennials and annual plantings. Thnks

I cannot recommend any herbicide for a mixed flower bed that is safe. Most are designed for woody plant areas or lawns. Weeding and then mulching work pretty well, actually.
