Nursery, Ornamentals & Turf

 

Sustainable Agriculture @ URI is, in essence, an information clearinghouse.  As such, we have refrained from duplicating the wealth of information available on nursery/ornamentals in favor of providing you with a quick link to some of the resources we consider the most comprehensive and/or user-friendly.  If you do not find what you’re looking for, please feel free to contact your extension agent

 

Visit the URI GreenShare Factsheets, URI Horticultural Outreach, URI Sustainable Trees and Shrubs and URI Turfgrass Outreach pages for information on current local research or to get in touch with one of our on-staff horticultural experts.
