Weeding out: how to recognize and control garden and lawn weeds

    Listen 00:48:43

    Guests: Scott Guiser, Lee Armillei

    It’s often said that a weed is simply a plant in the wrong place, but is this really true? Gardeners spend hours hunched over Canada thistle, creeping Charlie, burdock, bishop’s weed, digging, ripping, and pulling them out. As our gardens begin to get green, we’ll tackle weeds in this hour of Radio Times. Guest host Mary Cummings-Jordan talks with SCOTT GUISER, a horticulture educator who teaches weed science at the Barnes Foundation, and LEE ARMILLEI, Landscape designer and project supervisor with Greenweaver Landscapes. We’ll learn how to recognize beneficial weeds from invasives and the best weed controls.
