Garlic Mustard, Control Advice From the Front Lines


From the wonderful Northern Illinois restoration blog: Prairie Piece: living in harmony with nature comes a new post with comprehensive educational information and control options for dealing with garlic mustard ( Alliaria petiolata).

The restoration blogger, VJ Cepa,  speaks from experience and offers a short history of the plant’s introduction into the United States, the invaders’ life cycle and culture, some of the threats it poses to native plants,  tips on field identification (GM does have some native lookalikes) and a range of sensible and effective management tactics.
