Invasive Plants Be Gone

Program scheduled for Winter Hill

In a one-hour program on Saturday, Nov. 12, participants can learn how to control a dozen of the most aggressive invasive plants in the yard. Garlic mustard, wineberry and mugwort are some of the species that will be addressed by Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners in this free event hosted by the Hudson Highlands Land Trust at Winter Hill, 20 Nazareth Way in Garrison.

Invasive plants can spread fast and dominate the landscape, crowding out other desirable plants. But by understanding a plant’s life cycle and how it spreads and reproduces, it’s possible to control them without using herbicides. Alternative methods include biological and structural strategies. Part of the program will be answering questions from attendees. Call 845-424-3358 or visit hhlt.org to register.
