How long after Round-up has been used on a particular area is it safe to plant or replant daffodils there?
Seems like I’ve read it’s biodegradable when it hits the dirt.
Can I feel safe about planting in October where I’ve used Roundup in summer?

    Just a little experience from a humble amateur..
      I’ve used roundup in a “hose end” sprayer on the daffodil beds after the foliage has completely died back and not even removed it ! .. I’ve not observed a single loss.

    I’m certainly careful when I do this.
