The Q&A Archives: Round Up

Question: I have sprayed Round Up yesterday in one of my flower gardens and I want to plant ground cover in that area. How long must I wait before I plant in the area where I spayed the round up and will the plants survive? Thank you

Answer: Round Up is a non-selective vegetation killer so anything it makes contact with will die. I hope you did not spray any of your desireable plants! Round Up breaks down relatively fast in the presence of sunshine and fresh air so there should be no residual chemicals 10-14 days after you have sprayed. Read the label, though, just to make sure, and plant after the listed waiting period. Best wishes with your flower garden!
