Use herbicides correctly to help prevent damage

Email

Gardeners have been bringing plant samples into my office that have severely twisted and downward cupping leaves. The most probable cause of these symptoms is drift from broadleaf herbicides.

Herbicides, when used properly, rarely cause problems on nontarget plants. However, these products can cause injury when applied inappropriately or when they are blown by the wind away from the targeted area.
