Weed ID – Seed heads

Gardening in Georgia

The best tools for weed control isn't a chemical or a hoe – it's knowing which weed you have so you can decide what is the best course of action. Walter uses a plant's seed heads to know which is which. Take notes so you can be a weed detective too!

Sago Palms

They aren't really palms, but these primitive plants are common throughout south Georgia landscapes. Rog Ditmer at The Cloister shows Walter the difference between male and female plants – and discovers destructive scale insects feasting on the fronds!

Sheldon Fleming, at Wonderland Gardens, gives Walter pointers on this simple task.
