    The best thing to do is look for a 1800 # on the round up bottle and call them and see what they say. Good Hunting!

    If I am not mistaken, Round-Up is inactive once it hits the soil. If it doesn't land on a plant & get absorbed into the plant itself, it does nothing. Round-up does not actually keep stuff from growing but rather kills what is already growing.

    I would call the makers of Round-Up to be sure but I am thinking you can go ahead & plant.

    The areas of my yard, where I use Round-up, usually take about a year before any new growth starts. I have never tried to plant anything in thoses areas.
