Randy Prostak of the University of Massachusetts will take a commando stance on Thursday, July 26 at Elm Bank as part of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Thursdays at the Hort series. What do you do when the weeds are threatening to take over? Randy Prostak’s presentation will focus on dealing with some of the toughest weeds to manage in lawns, landscapes and garden. He’ll take you through cultural, non-chemical, and herbicidal controls; and then field your questions with specific answers untainted by industry propaganda.
Randy Prostak has been a University of Massachusetts Extension Specialist since 2000 where he specializes in weed management. He is a member of the Landscape, Nursery and Urban Forestry Team and currently serves on the Massachusetts Invasive Plant Advisory Group. He is an active member of the Northeastern Weed Science Society and Weed Science Society of America. The program begins at 7 pm, and is priced at $12 for Mass Hort members, $15 for non members, and there is no need to register in advance. For complete details visit www.masshort.org.
