All About Invasive Plants


Did you know that the beautiful lupines blooming in ditches across Cook County are non-native invasives, crowding out our native plants? Given that, how do you know if the plant you are introducing into your garden won't become a problem in the future? And who decides what plants go on the noxious weed list and must be eradicated?  These questions and more are discussed on this special program on Northern Gardening.

Guests on the show include Cook County Invasive Team members Jack Greenlee, Superior National Forest; Brandon Seitz, Grand Portage National Monument; Becca Orf, Cook County Invasive Team coordinator and Nancy Seaton, Gunflint Trail Scenic Byway Association.
