I cleared a woodland edge of japanese honeysuckle, poison ivy, multiflora rose and other assorted undesirables. I would like to spray to prevent them from returning, but I'd also like to plant big bluestem, persimmon and filbert in 2 months. Is that long enough to wait to plant?
Crossbow Herbicide can persist in the soil for up to 1 year You must wait one year after an application of Crossbow Herbicide to plant anything in the treated areas. Otherwise, you can remove and replace the soil with untreated soil. You will need to wait at least 3 weeks before replanting other plants in areas where Crossbow Herbicide has been applied. However, keep in mind that excessive amounts of this herbicide in the soil could inhibit seed germination and plant growth.
