Flywheel Spoke 2- Plant Selection

Plants like to grow... You may not need pesticides if you follow horticulture principles such as grouping by plant communities, growing ground cover plants and matching plants with their preferable environmental conditions.  The case studies below include presentations from past Lawn & Land Forum speakers who shared their approaches to selecting the right plant for the right place. In the future, the Forum will organize these speakers and case studies into a list of best practices for Plant Selection. This work is funded by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Coastal Management Program.
