The LO-OMAFRA Nursery Growers' Short Course is set for Friday, February 10 at the Landscape Ontario office in Milton. The event is offered in both virtual and in-person formats in case you can’t make it to Milton. We look forward to seeing you there! Registration information.

2. Invasive species

The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNRF) is working on a new list of invasives to regulate. Feedback from our members indicates minimal impact, although some of our members do produce a few of the aquatics listed. We will be writing a response to MNRF this week.
