Q

My shrubs and plants along my property line have been generously sprayed leaving behind a salty residue. What to do?

Although several plants/shrubs are dead or too far gone, some have leaves that are curling and dying. Can anything be done to save these plants? I've tried spraying with garden hose, cutting off dead leaves, etc. I understand a formula of 1/2 bleach to 1/2 saltwater is used by some neighbors to kill neighboring vegetation - sometimes with road salt added. Is there a remedy? Thank you.

Answer

You are doing the right thing by trying to wash off the residue.  Keep the plants well watered and be sure that the soil has been flushed also.  Eventually, as the branches do  develop new leaves, the dead branches should be pruned away.
