HomeGrown 07/11/10 – Roadside Weeds of Kentuckiana & Gulf Coast Plants

The “at-risk” plants along the Gulf Coast – and the possibly loveable weeds along Kentucky and Indiana roads – are the stories on HomeGrown this week. University of Kentucky graduate Nancy Gift, author of “A Weed by Any Other Name,” is a defender of some weeds in the yard, and she helps identify the more attractive weeds along our roadsides. Owensboro native Carrie Knott talks about her work in coastal plant breeding along the Louisiana coast, and the possible effects of the gulf oil spill on the coastal plant ecosystems.
