Invasive plants are becoming an increasing threat to the environment as bittersweet, garlic mustard and multiflora rose sweep rampant throughout the landscape. This discussion centers on what homeowners can do to eliminate or control the spread of these pest plants. Learn how to identify them, their natural history and the mechanical, chemical and biological control techniques currently available. Participate in a candid discussion of herbicide use.
