Invasive Species

I stumbled across this video on Plano Prairie Garden. I’m dedicated to getting the word out about this problem. You’ll notice that this species has invaded my garden, as shown in my last Wordless Wednesday post. You must educate yourself before it’s too late.


  1. Oh no! They already invaded your garden. Don’t let them get out of control. Organic controls are generally effective, but Home Depot sells Gnome-B-Gon if you need to resort to chemical controls.

  2. When I was in Northern New Mexico a couple of summers ago we came upon an artist that made "Gnome Begones".
    see the following link to see the army that will rid the world of gnomes!

  3. We have a similar problem here in tropical areas with those bright, pink flamengos. I don't have the garden gnome problem in my garden because they don't do as well in shade.

    Nice Post

  4. You'd think you'd be safe with just one. But somehow they must reproduce asexually. If even one gets into your garden, they will find a way to take over!

  5. You gotta love those gnomes! I have three of the little guys in my yard...last time I looked.
