Research
Cane burning, chemically removing the first primocanes produced by red raspberry in the spring, is commonly practiced in the Pacific Northwest.  The practice was first described by scientists in Washington and Oregon in the early 1970’s, and was developed to aid in the machine harvest of the predominant raspberry cultivar at the time (‘Willamette’) using the herbicide dinoseb.   Read more.

archangel flowerse

NO SAINT: YELLOW ARCHANGEL.  One of the most troublesome of horticultural noxious weeds in Washington is yellow archangel.  This species is a lovely evergreen mint species with variegated leaves that produces bright yellow flowers in the spring, but an invasive nature belies its angelic features.  The most common refrain from people whose lands are infested with yellow archangel?  “How do I get rid of it?”  Read more
