Have a small section of land where I sprayed this stuff on it. Tenants later asked if they could put a garden there. If I till the ground up thoroughly, will it still affect anything they plant?

It would work if it was straight Roundup, but this stuff has an added ingredient that prevents vegetation from growing for a year. I'd say the garden is doomed until at least a year passes, and maybe more. Could they do a raised bed or container gardens?

Darn, hate to hear that. There are other areas they can put it, this was just a really nice spot. Thanks for the info.

Lots of healthier ways to start a garden.

Good, I hope it does well, and plants could be put in the other area next year.

Hi @questionanswer, and welcome to the NGA! Great place to be, and to ask and get answers.

I know you probably don't want to hear this, but Roundup is one of the most damaging things you can put into the earth. Perhaps you would consider safer, healthier methods in the future?

Hope so. Crossing Fingers!
