raspberries plants painted
I am so choked. I had some painters paint my fence and they used a sprayer without covering up my plants. There is now a portion of my vegetable garden soil along the fence that has paint misted on it and my raspberry bushes have the same misting on them. I just planted them after searching all over the city for 3 months for this cultivar - I got the last 4.
Does anyone know what I can do? I was going to strip the soil and get rid of it. But I'm not sure what to do with the raspberry bushes. Should I just cut them to the ground to get rid of the contaminated leaves or will it matter? I will be cutting them down in a couple of months anyway. Will the paint travel into the new fruit? Will it get into the soil and contaminate the plant for years to come???? Help!!
