I sprayed an area early this spring.It was before the lilies emerged.
It not only killed the invasive campanula but the dorment lilies.
It continues to affect the other lilies that are fully up and ready to set blooms.
Is it safe to plant in this area ?
Is the soil toxic?

I do not know about the Ortho but I read that with the Round Up you can re-plant in two weeks. That is what I did so I hope I don't have any problems. I do not know why it would still be toxic after all this time. Try extra water and see if you can flush it all out. I will let you know If I find any information.
