My husband is putting a coating on our roof and it splattered a bit of paint on it. Will this kill the plants? My son has worked so hard on this garden and is extremely upset.

Welcome!

What did you husband use on the roof? The silicon stuff? If they are just splattered, not coated, they should be fine.

Thank you, it is silicone. It got on some herbs, also. Can they be trimmed and still be okay to use?

Silicon makes things waterproof. It won't kill the plants or you but I still wouldn't eat it. Eat around the affected leaves.
