I accidently got weed killer on my moonflower. Can I save it? It has just begun to vine up the fence and now it is very droopy.



Only thing you can do is very heavily water it to try to dilute the weed killer and hope

If the weedkiller is a systemic one you might have a problem. Whenever I have done this I take off the wet greenery straight away to stop it drying and getting into the plant. If the strength of the poison was as indicated on the packet, it was allowed to dry and was done within a few days you might be unlucky. Usually there is a time limit, see packet, between putting on and washing off (raining) so if you have passed this time watering may not help. Best of luck with it anyway, sorry to be gloomy.
