I just googled this topic as the weeds have been subjected to spray and got a bit anxious about it as I was thinking of planting some more herbs.

The below article suggests its fine, but do you agree, or have any other thoughts.

It depends on the weedkiller used.

If a glyphosate one (e.g. Roundup) was used then it will be fine to plant herbs.

However, if a stronger weedkiller, such as Woody Weedkiller, has been used then you need to read the label (or the internet) to find out how long you should wait before planting anything.
