Lowcountry Lecture: The Decline of the Garden and Rise of the Landscape
October 16 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Kari Whitley, Plant Pathologist, Coastal Expeditions
Consumers are driven by low prices, uniformity and constant availability — and the greenhouse, nursery and landscaping industries have responded to the demand. Kari will discuss how this determines what nurseries decide to grow each year and why native plants are hard to find in garden centers and box stores. With over 20 years in retail and wholesale ornamental plant production, Kari will share insights into what will need to happen to change this trend and how to expand the native plant market in our communities.
