Q.Can I Paint On Stump Killer And Then Plant Round The Stumps?

Zone Leeds, UK | Louglou added on October 2, 2020 | Answered

I have had 5 conifers removed with stumps down to ground level. I have also cut back a thorn bush that grows very fast and straggly. It’s been cut back nearly to the ground. Can I paint on SBK stump killer and still plant around them straight after?

The product description says to wait six weeks before replanting. It also says you may have to reapply the product in six weeks, depending on the hardiness of the stump or weed.

If you do not anticipate having to respray and are not planting right on top of the root zone area, I would think it OK to plant after about a week.
