Hello Listener, 

How do I control weeds is probably one of the most common questions we get. So in this month's episode, we are chatting all about spring weeds. What is a Weed? Which ones are our favorites? What's the difference between a typical weed, an invasive plant, and a Noxious Weed? 

We also have our: 

  •  Native Plant of the Month ( Golden Ragwort) at 49:00
  • Garden Tips of the Month at 33:00
  • Bug of the Month (Carpenter Bees) at 33:10

To learn more about Maryland Noxious Weeds, check out the Maryland Noxious Weed I.D. guide. 

Plant Invaders of the Mid-Atlantic is a great guide and resource for helping understand invasive plant biology and control methods. Some extension offices have these available in print.

 If you have any garden-related questions, please email us at or look us up on Facebook at For more information about UME and these topics, please check out the UME Home and Garden Information Center and Maryland Grows Blog at
