As some of you may know, public funding for the Ontario Invasive Plant Council was eliminated in June 2019. Many of its resources are no longer available to purchase but can still be downloaded. To ensure that electronic copies continue to be available, I’ve included copies of some of them here.
Dog strangling vine can creep along the ground, smothering everything in its path. It can also get wrapped into chain-link fences and up onto mature trees. To remove it, DO NOT PULL IT . That only encourages new growth. Cut flowers and pods off before they go to seed and “bake” in a black plastic bag in full sun for 1 week before disposing in household garbage. DO NOT COMPOST.
