Summertime and the Weeds You Love To Hate
May 18, 2015
10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
As the warmer days of summer approach, we can expect residents throughout the state to reach out to our extension centers to help them identify the many weeds that distract from the beauty of their gardens and landscapes.

During this workshop, Peter Russell will discuss the impact of weeds on our landscape, key weed characteristics, weed lifecycles and their reproductive strategies and some basic guidelines for weed control. He will discuss the identification features of several annual, biennial and perennial weeds and will have attendees participate in the “Gardeners Weed Challenge“exercise at the end of the workshop.

Peter has created a Weed ID Guide featuring photos and ID features for over 60 weeds found in the Connecticut landscape as tools that Master Gardeners attending the workshop can use for their community outreach activities.
Peter Russell is a certified Advanced Master Gardener, and a TSV, P3 and Perennial Garden mentor at the Bartlett Arboretum in Stamford.
