Q.

stump killer removal from soil

Zone LS12 2DQ | tigga added on July 3, 2016 | Answered

Four weeks ago I used Wilko stump remover to kill ivy up a fence. Could you please advise to how long before I can replant in this area or will the rain have washed it out by now? Friend suggested pouring boiling water over the area. Would like your opinion to whether this will make the soil safe to plant into. regards Ann

You will need to read the application directions and information on the package to determine carry over in the soil.

Most packaging contains a Customer Service number that can also answer questions specific to their product.
