Project Information

Summary:

Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE97-182

Chris Schlegel and her associate, Mary Cockburn, have noticed an increasing interest, in recent years, in the use of various woodland plants as ornamentals. They have launched a business to grow and sell these, hoping thereby to reduce pressure on wild populations, and at the same time turn a profit. They obtained a SARE grant to assist with compiling a catalogue and set of slides of decorative plants native to northeast Vermont. They use the slides, which are available for loan, in presentations to garden clubs. The catalogue includes descriptions, some sketches, planting suggestions, and instructions as to the care of some forty indigenous species.
