Involving Gardeners In The Prevention Of Future Plant Invasions

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Ornamental horticulture is regarded as the main pathway for the introduction and spread of invasive non-native plants. The aim of this project is therefore to engage with gardeners to prevent future invasions of species spreading from gardens.
We'll be working with gardeners across North West Wales (Anglesey, Conwy and Gwynedd) to identify and prevent 'future invaders'. To do this, we'll be looking at which ornamental plants are spreading in gardens and can also be found outside gardens such as in neighbouring protected areas.
We will also look at garden plant inventories to identify species that could become a problem because of climate change. Specific advice on ornamental plants for three target areas will recommend ornamentals which are less likely to become a problem in the future.
