Increasing Utilization of Native Plants and Powdery Mildew Resistant Plants for NY Gardens
Daughtrey, Margery; Lamboy, Jana; Marvin, Debra
Plants that perform without pesticide inputs are attractive to gardeners. Commercial growers need to be shown specific examples of what they can offer to the public. We showcased native garden plants and perennials resistant to powdery mildew to growers, nurserymen and landscapers at the Cornell Greenhouse Horticulture Open House and Field Day, in Ithaca, and reported on the results of our trial at numerous grower meetings regionally and nationally.
