What’s Your Weed? Ask a Master Gardener Day

Author: Share:

Pull it, and bring to the Angelica Free Library on June 3

Warmer days, the perfect time of the year for gardening, plants growing big, and weeds are not the exception!

Weeds have a story to tell and an important function to perform, they are indicators of possible soil problems and fill an important role in the garden. Getting rid of weeds is not only pulling them away or spraying herbicides, it’s about understanding why they are growing in your garden, what species they are, and how they behave, so you can choose the right method to control those weeds in your garden.

Join our Master Gardener Volunteers from Cornell Cooperative Extension Allegany County to learn about the weeds that pop up in Spring and Summer, tips, and recommendations to control your weeds successfully. Bring up to three samples of weeds that you want to identify.

How to take the weed sample?

  1. Pull up the plant by the roots
  2. shake or wash off as much of the soil as possible
  3. wrap roots in a damp paper towel. (If you can’t get the root, pluck stems, leaves and/or flowers and wrap them in a damp paper towel to preserve color and freshness – this will help in identification)Limit to 3 samples, please!

Or just come and ask any gardening questions you might have.  We’re here to help!

Date: June 3, 2023

Time: You can come anytime from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Location: Angelica Free Library, 55 W. Main St., Angelica NY 14709
