Hi i have used Provado bug killer on my young radish and beetroot plants and may have sprayed young rocket.Should i dispose of them or will they be ok to eat in a couple of weeks



The bottle says to leave for 14 days before eating but, personally, I wouldn't have use anything like that on a food crop. I just keep a spray for occaisional use on our alpine plants in the greenhouse.

I've never felt comfortable using Provado on vegetables, either. Even carbaryl or malathion makes me worry.
