Making it Grow! Halloween Special with host Amanda McNulty. Teresa Young, natural resources agent from Florence, S.C., answers questions online in the Facebook chat room. This week, Dr. John Nelson has a mystery plant that is an invasive annual grass that we do not want growing here in South Carolina.
