How Long to Wait to Plant After Weed Killer Was Sprayed
My husband sprayed weed killer on my garden right before I was ready to plant anything. Of course, I went ahead a couple of weeks later and tried to plant veggies, but they all died by the next day. Is there anything I can do to prevent the killer from killling my next attempt, or should I just avoid the garden all together this year?

Most weed killers have broken down after a week or two. It should be safe to plant now. If you are leery, you can plant just one at first. Most weed killers take effect within 24 hours and if the plant is ok after 24 hours, it should be ok to plant there.
