Can I save plants accidentally sprayed with weed killer?
In a fever-induced frenzy I accidently confused my weed killer for mildew control spray. After realizing my mistake the next day, I attempted to wash it from my plants, but it seems my butterfly bushes and black eyed susans have taken the brunt of it. Is there anything I can do to try to save these plants? Will they come back next year, or have I lost them forever? Any information you could share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -dawn

Hi Dawn,



Thanks for writing. I'm sorry to hear about your situation! Your plants may come back, depending on what they were sprayed with, how established the plants were, and other factors. So at this point the best thing I can suggest is patience --- they may start to regrow yet this year if they haven't died.
