Q.Putting New Plants Where You Just Pulled Poison Ivy

Anonymous added on April 2, 2011 | Answered

We have a new house. Other than trees, there was a poison ivy jungle here. I have some areas of full sun where I’d like to plant flowers. I need to remove the poison ivy. Should I spray or just pull these plants? Can I plant this year in spots where the poison ivy has thrived?

This article will help you with removing the poison ivy:

I would wait a year until planting. Poison ivy is very invasive and typically it takes several months to completely get rid of it. It is much easier to get rid of if you can use wholesale methods to kill it rather than having to work around new plantings.
