Pull that garlic mustard!!

Garlic mustard:  this highly invasive plant has arrived and is threatening our forests. In some areas it has all but eliminated the native forest floor plants, and even has the ability to stop the germination of some tree seeds. You are most likely to find it around the edges of your lawns and gardens, in disturbed areas, under shrubs and so forth. Pulling it whenever you see it is the first line of defense.  Garlic mustard is in flower the first week of May, but will continue to bloom as young plants grow.
