HO-123
What Is a Carbon Footprint and How Does It Relate to Landscape Plants?
6/10/2019 (new)

 UK Authors: Dewayne Ingram, Josh Knight
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: nursery and landscape, ornamental plants

Carbon footprint is a term used to describe the impact of greenhouse gas emissions associated with a product or activity. The objective of this publication is enhance the reader's understanding of carbon footprint (CF) terminology and the science underlying its determination. Having such an understanding is necessary for managers and developers to minimize the negative environmental impacts of new product development and assess positive or negative cradle-to-grave life-cycle impacts. Life cycle assessment has been used to characterize the CF of representative field-grown and container-grown landscape plants.

HO-121
Ecosystem Services of Landscape Plants: A Guide for Consumers and Communities
6/25/2018 (new)

 UK Authors: Dewayne Ingram, Josh Knight
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags:

This publication is intended to assist consumers and community groups in learning about the value of landscape plants. Landscape plants play an important role in the urban environment, from reducing urban heat islands to improving the aesthetic experience (i.e. curb appeal) we derive from the landscape of an individual home. Further, there is a growing body of scientific literature evaluating the critical role of trees in landscaping within urban and suburban environments like residential neighborhoods, commercial/industrial areas, and associated green infrastructure like park systems and green belts. One useful tool for articulating the functions landscape plants perform for us is the concept of ecosystem services.

HO-119
Reducing Heat Stress to Container-Grown Plants
11/14/2017 (new)

 UK Authors: Dewayne Ingram
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: nursery and landscape, ornamental plants

Production of plants in containers offer many advantages over field production. Shorter production cycles, larger numbers of plants per acre, and the ability to continuously market and ship plants are among those advantages. However, there are some disadvantages including more intense cultural practices, a relatively short window of optimum marketability due to container size restrictions, and rapid daily temperature fluctuations within the container substrate (growing medium). This publication will provide information about plant response to high root-zone temperatures, identify critical temperatures, describe the factors that influence temperature fluctuations, and suggest cultural practices to reduce heat stress in container-grown plants.

CCD-SP-7
Pot-in-Pot Nursery Production
1/31/2017 (minor revision)

 UK Authors: Matthew Ernst, Dewayne Ingram
 Departments: Agricultural Economics, Horticulture
 Series: System Profiles: Center for Crop Diversity (CCD-SP series)
 Tags: nursery and landscape

"Pot-in-pot" describes a nursery production system that uses containers (production pots) placed inside permanent in-ground containers (socket pots). Pot-in-pot is used for the production of caliper-sized shade trees, flowering trees, and large shrubs. The pot-in-pot system combines many of the benefits of field production with the marketing flexibility of container production. Container-grown plants can be sold at any time of year and with relatively short notice, whereas harvesting of field-grown plants requires more planning and is typically not done during the summer or extremely wet periods.

 UK Authors: Rick Durham, Bill Fountain,
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags:

Many landscape plants are installed as container-grown (containerized) specimens. These, along with balled and burlapped (B&B) and bareroot, are the three major ways we transplant trees and shrubs from nurseries to our landscapes. The keys to quick establishment and decades of satisfaction are following proven techniques in installation and providing proper care after transplanting.
