Round up and other chemical damage

Recommended Posts

If you use round-up in your planting areas, or if you spray your yard / garden for weeds, here's a tip to keep non-target plants from dying, if you accidentally oversprayed.

Trim back the dying growth about 2" from where you notice the overspray.

Most likely the chemical hasn't gotten far enough into the plant to cause real damage or total death, and you can save the plant.

This is a little harder with grass, or grassy ornamentals as they take up chemical quite quickly.

So, if you happen to see some chemical damage on some plants that you'd like to keep, don't just throw in the towel and start shopping for new plants, get out with the snips and do some slight trimming, you should be able to save your landscape.
