About the Class:

Getting Control of Insects, Weeds, and Diseases

November 19, 7pm EST



Insect pests, out-of-control diseases, and unrelenting weeds—these are the things that keep gardeners up at night. Most of us know that reaching for a spray bottle of toxic chemicals isn’t the answer, but what is the right way to combat these gardening nemeses? Dr. Jeff Gillman, director of the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens and author of multiple books, including The Truth About Garden Remedies: What Works, What Doesn’t and Why, has spent his career studying cultural and chemical treatments for these gardening problems. In this webinar he will highlight which treatments work, which ones don’t, and which ones are too dangerous to consider. If you always thought an organic product like Bordeaux mix couldn’t be harmful, you might want to think again.

The duration of the class is one hour, followed by a 30-minute Q&A with the speaker.

Jeff Gillman, Director of the UNC Charlotte Botanic Gardens


Jeff Gillman has spent the better part of 30 years researching weed, disease, and insect pest management. He has a master’s degree in entomology and a Ph.D. in horticulture from the University of Georgia. He is the author of five books on gardening and the environment and a well-respected contributing editor to Fine Gardening magazine. Chances are you’ve seen Jeff lecturing across the country or possibly on gardening television shows like The Martha Stewart Show and Growing a Greener World. Before becoming the director of the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens in 2015, Jeff spent 15 years as an associate professor in the Department of Horticultural Science at the University of Minnesota. When he’s not testing, trialing, and researching all things gardening, you’ll find Jeff searching for the best barbecue in town.
