Survey shows Maine nursery industry concern over invasive plants

A survey of Maine nursery and landscaping businesses showed that most respondents were concerned about invasive ornamental plants and tried to steer their customers towards buying non-invasive plants.  Most would also support labeling of invasive ornamental plants or would not carry invasive plants.  Interestingly, most were neutral about whether their customers were concerned about invasive plants.
