Moisture and warm temperatures allow our early plants to emerge (5o C is the typical start for growth for many plants), but it is the soil temperature at root level that is critical for spring revival. With plants that do not have chive-like leaves, (monocots) differentiating the good guys from the bad guys can be difficult at this stage as the first leaves on many broad leaved plants (dicots) are different from the later leaves. It is worthwhile to protect one, and remove the other.
