Re: [nafex] Round up damage

Last summer I tried to spot kill quack grass and vetch in my perennial bed. I
was really short on time and thought this might work and also thin out my New
England Asters at the same time. I was careful to cover the plants that were not
being targeted except for the asters. This strategy worked great. The only
problem I noted was that some plants which had not been in contact with the
Roundup exhibited weakness later in the season. This made me wonder if maybe the
Roundup that had been absorbed into the roots and therefore was present in the
soil, became available to some of the nearby plants that might be more
vic NH zone 3
