Description

Teri defines “weed,” and discusses the scope of the problem and what gardeners can realistically expect to achieve in their battle.

She then reviews a variety of ways to fight back, saving herbicides for last. Because glyphosate is the most well-known and widely used (and perhaps most controversial) weedkiller, she spends extra time describing what it is and how it works, as well as noting its benefits and risks.

She will also specifically discuss the most common invasive plants in the New England area.

Q&A and book sales follow the presentation.
