No matter how much scientific evidence to the contrary, there are certain “garden miracles” that just won’t go away. Landscape professionals can quickly lose their credibility – and cause damage to plants and soil – when they end up promoting products and practices that aren’t based on reputable science. In this seminar, we will discuss several of these products and practices that have no underlying science to support them. At the end, we’ll examine some evidence-based alternatives to use in gardens and
landscapes.  Handouts will be provided.
