can we go from apple blossoms to garlic mustard ? yes. it is just a plant. and strangely enough there is a place where this plant is in its natural habitat. it just is not here. and not a lot of other places where it wants to take over. this was growing here in the yard this spring. it is the first time it has shown up here in the years i have been gardening. the trick is to get it before it goes to seed. this is one plant that will not go into the compost pile. it is on the noxious weed list here in Ohio and in many places. follow local disposal instructions.
