WORKSHOP ON CONTROLLING INVASIVE PLAN
Bittersweet, privet, kudzu and tree of heaven are all words you don't want to hear if you are a property owner in foothills of the Carolinas. A hands-on workshop teaching folks how to attack these noxious woody weeds. Plans include having the participants work on an overgrown space on the FENCE property. As strange as it may sound many non-native woody plant species can be effectively controlled when attacked while dormant. At the very least one does not have to contend with yellow jackets, hornets or snakes, when working before bud break in late winter. Retired horticulturist John Vining will be discussing how to identify the plants in winter and which plants are best suited for this dormant treatment.

Invasive talk
We all love the climate in the Carolina foothills and unfortunately so do most of our most serious invasive plants. Plants such as Tree of Heaven, Kudzu, Oriental Bittersweet, Wisteria, and Miscanthus grass are all exotic or non-native plants that when left unchecked become serious weeds that are extremely difficult to control.
