Update: Plant & Pull Day canceled due to rain

Post Date:05/07/2019 11:17 am

Plant & Pull Day has been canceled
due to the rain. The gardens are saturated and too muddy for planting. 

Residents are asked to volunteer to help beautify Plymouth and benefit the environment during the citywide Plant and Pull Day, set for Saturday, May 18.

Participants will plant flowering annuals near city parks and facilities during the event, as well as pull the invasive garlic mustard plant in woodland areas.

To volunteer for Plant and Pull Day, call 763-509-5230 or email

Garlic MustardAbout Garlic Mustard
Garlic mustard aggressively monopolizes light, moisture, nutrients, soil and space – and outcompetes many native plants that provide food and habitat for pollinators like butterflies and bees.

When garlic mustard replaces native plants, many wildlife species are deprived of essential food sources that provide foliage, pollen, nectar, fruits, seeds and roots.

Named for the odor of garlic the plant gives off when the leaves are crushed, garlic mustard is a biennial herb with stalked, triangular to heart-shaped, coarsely toothed leaves. Flowering plants are 2 to 3 1/2 feet tall and produce clusters of small white flowers, each with four petals.

The plant’s entire root system must be removed to prevent new plants from sprouting.

Plymouth city staff ask residents to keep an eye out for the invasive garlic mustard plant – and help remove it.
