I have a small flower planting area of about 25 sq. ft. When I plant
flowers in it each summer, the weeds come up so bad, I can keep up with
weeding it each week. (I also much about 3 or 4 inches, but that doesn't
stop these weeds).
Before I plant flowers, if I soak the ground with Roundup, how long would I
have to wait to plant the flowers ?
Roundup works only when it touchs folage. Soaking the ground doesn't do
anything for weed control. You have to wait until the weeds come above
ground to have any effect with Roundup. I usually wait 7-10 days after
roundup before planting.
Thanks for replies.... I should clarify.... I spent several hours pulling
as many of the weeds out as I could... but, many roots and small weed shoots
just pull off at ground level. I thought that soaking the ground would
reach these shoot that were left, and by systemic action, kill the weed
Next time, I will just spray round up on the full weeds, let them die off,
and then pull them out.
