If so, you should know about a new publication that is available from Sea Grant. Invasive Aquatic Plants: What Every Plant Enthusiast Needs to Know, is a four-page color brochure intended for people with "blue-green thumbs," who have ponds or water gardens in their yards. The brochure describes the problems invasive plants create and provides instructions on how to prevent their accidental spread. It even includes a "most wanted" list of plants that pose the greatest ecological and economic threats, and information on native alternatives.
 
Invasive Aquatic Plants: What Every Plant Enthusiast Needs to Know was published as part of a national invasive aquatic plant outreach project, which was a cooperative effort between the Connecticut, Illinois-Indiana, Minnesota, and North Carolina Sea Grant Programs, and the Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants at The University of Florida.

Free single copies are available from Minnesota Sea Grant. To order, visit the products order form, under the exotics category (item X 77).
