“Where Are All The Weeds?” by David Whiting, Thursday, Jan. 26, 2023

Spring may be many weeks away, but there lurks a force to be reckoned with in the garden as soon as the days grow longer—weeds. Join David Whiting for the Green Thumb Garden Tips presentation “Where Are All The Weeds?” and discover where weeds are now and what you can do to keep them at bay when they finally arrive.

Some gardeners spend little time weeding with few weeds in their landscapes and gardens. Others spend hours and hours only to have their gardens covered with weeds. Why? David’s class on the science of weeds looks at causes of weed problems and various management techniques to hinder their spread.

David will take the audience through different scenarios on weed prevention, as management depends on the specific weeds and the gardening conditions. “This class gives a variety of weed management techniques that the individual gardener can incorporate, depending on their specific situation,” he said.

The Green Thumb Garden Tips presentation “Where Are All The Weeds?” will be held in person on Thursday, Jan. 26 from noon – 1 p.m. at the Port Angeles Main Library’s Carver Room at 2210 S. Peabody Street in Port Angeles.
