US (MA): Gardener raises concerns about products found at local nursery

1 Min Read

Heading to the local garden center is an outing most gardeners love. There are gorgeous plants and flowers in bloom, new products to try, and outdoor decor to upgrade lawn aesthetics. But what one gardener found at their local plant nursery frustrated them enough to post a warning about it.

The Reddit user posted in the r/NativePlantGardening subreddit, sharing a photo of lily of the valley plants on a shelf next to Boston ivy and wrote, “I found the severely invasive section of my garden center.”

The Cornell Botanic Gardens website describes an invasive plant as “one that is capable of moving aggressively into a habitat and monopolizing resources such as light, nutrients, water, and space to the detriment of other species.”

One Reddit user commented, “Should be illegal to sell them.”
