Every gardener will eventually have to deal with weeds and invasives. Kenneth Karamichael, Rutgers Office of Continuing Professional Education Director and columnist for The Gardener News, and his team join the “Grow Together” series to show us the best ways to manage and control weeds in our gardens.
Invasive plants are plants that are non-native to the ecosystem and could cause environmental harm, or even harm to human health. According to the U.S. Forest Service, invasive plants have contributed to the decline of 42% of U.S. endangered and threatened species. It is essential for every gardener to recognize invasive plants, understand how to remove them properly, and prevent them from spreading.
