Event description

Description

Valley Forge Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society Lecture
Presented by Scott Guiser


Herbicides are useful tools in garden maintenance of landscape plantings. In this presentation, Scott will explore how herbicides can be used safely. Scott will also identify the herbicides that have greatest potential to do harm and how to avoid plant injury. Special attention will be given to rhododendrons and azaleas with respect to herbicide safety.
