Marlborough: Invasive Plant Crisis discussion

October 10, 2012

| Free

Local gardens, neighborhoods and wild lands are being overrun by several dozen plants that evolved in far-away continents.? Oct. 10, interested residents are invited to hear noted expert Peter Alden discuss this important issue as the Colonial Garden Club of Marlborough presents “Friend or Foe:? The Invasive Alien Plant Crisis in Massachusetts.”? The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the Jaworek Elementary School, 44 Hosmer St., Marlborough. The vast majority of garden shop novelties stay where they are planted, but a few have become huge nuisances.? Alden, who has led eco-tours to over 100 countries, will highlight the few dozen trees, shrubs, vines and wild flowers that are most out of control out of the 100 or so now banned from import or sale here. Prospective members are always welcome to attend. For more information, visit www.colonialgardenclub.org.
