May is Invasive Species Action Month (ISAM). Calling all gardeners! Do you know which plants are invasive and which are good alternatives? Know what you grow! Exotic plants, bulbs and seeds promoted as “fast spreaders,” “vigorous self-seeders” and/or “drought resistant” can also be invasive species! Invasive plants often have the very characteristics we seek the most for easy to maintain, ground-covering plants. Join this webinar to learn about “PlantWise” and “Grow me Instead” with one of ISCBC’s PlantWise industry partners, NATS Nursery.
