For millions of years, plants have evolved to protect themselves from prey, disease, and encroachment as they are obviously immobile once situated. Their defenses are mechanical and chemical. A lot of the chemicals are toxins, which include allelopathy, insecticides, and fatal poisons. North Fulton Master Gardener Linda McGinn will discuss plants that produce toxins, with an overview of the history, chemistry, action, and current use.
The North Fulton Master Gardeners in collaboration with the UGA Extension in Fulton County are continuing to provide horticultural education to the North Fulton community and beyond through FREE virtual gardening education programming. This series of six classes begins Sunday, February 6, 2022, and will be available through live Zoom webinars and Facebook Live. Each class emphasizes practical gardening activities at the time of year that is best suited for that activity.
