About this Event
"Plant This, Not That: Florida-Friendly Alternatives to Invasive Plants" - how to avoid adding in invasive plants to your landscape.
Just because a plant is available at your favorite plant nursery or garden-supply store, doesn't mean that it should necessarily be used in your landscaping - it could be an invasive plant species that could quickly spread into other areas, becoming an ecological and economic nightmare. Invasive plants are regularly found for sale in Florida and should be avoided as landscaping plants for the benefit of the environment.
Join in this informative talk to learn best-choices of Florida-Friendly landscape plants and about the invasive plants that should be avoided for landscaping. Learn how to create a beautiful landscape that grows in harmony with its natural surroundings.
The Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Program is here to help you learn how to have healthy and beautiful landscapes that protect Florida’s natural resources by following nine science-based principles:
• Right Plant, Right Place
• Water Efficiently
• Fertilize Appropriately
• Attract Wildlife
• Manage Yard Pests Responsibly
• Recycle Yard Waste
• Reduce Stormwater Runoff
• Protect the Waterfront
A Florida-friendly landscape can be designed to look the way you want, fit the aesthetics of your community, and suit your lifestyle, while being environmentally sustainable.
