Native Plant Conservation through Reducing Invasive Plant Spread

Dandelion      A Voluntary Code of Conduct for the Gardening Public is endorsed by the Herb Society of America, as a means of creating awareness for the impact invasive plants can have not only on our own gardens but in our regional ecosystems.

How can we as responsible gardeners and good stewards of the earth help?

Here’s how:

Determine which plant species are invasive in your area through research.

Buy only non-invasive species when you acquire plants.

Do not trade plants with other gardeners if you know they are invasive plant species.

Help promote a community awareness program for invasive plant species through botanical gardens, nurseries, other gardeners, the media.
