round up and dope was sprayed to kill the weeds in my yard. It was sprayed where I want to plant a grape vine , seeds and bulbs. How long do I have to wait to be able to plant for my stuff will be fine and will grow? It was sprayed April 13 in the afternoon. I was also thinking of when planting my grape vine put gardening soil in the dirt since round up weed killer and dope was sprayed to kill the weed in that spot. Here's a picture if the jug my father says is dope. I am also wondering is this good to use when planting seeds or a grape vine. Picture sent. Or is garden soil what I should use?

The law requires most of these type of herbicides to break down in 14 days.
