Roundup is one of the most recognizable brand names in herbicide. This broad spectrum product kills actively growing grass and weeds when sprayed on the foliage. Care must be taken when using Roundup to avoid killing other plants.
Ornamental Flowers, Trees and Shrubs
After applying Roundup Weed & Grass Killer to a planting bed or area of lawn, it is best to wait at least one full day before planting any ornamental flowers, trees or shrubs.
According to the Scotts Company, which manufactures Roundup, consumers should wait at least three days after application to plant, including lawn grasses, fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Read Product Labels
Since there are multiple formulations of varying strengths sold under the Roundup brand name, it's important for consumers to read the product label for their particular herbicide. Suggested wait times may vary with different formulas.
