Today, we all have an unprecedented wide choice in plant species and variety. However, we're also in the midst of a perfect storm of production practices and economic realities that have made it all too likely that the plant we buy will not have a good root system. In this presentation professional gardeners and author-photographers Janet Macunovich and Steven Nikkila share how this situation came about, the research attention it's getting, what you can expect to see, the fixes they've learned and results they've seen.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn from experts like Janet and Steve.
