Find out if it’s an alien

B.C. gardeners and landscapers planning for next year’s gardens can now use their mobile devices to find out which plants are non-invasive

B.C. gardeners and landscapers planning for next year’s gardens can now use their mobile devices to find out which plants are non-invasive, as the PlantWise program has launched a mobile app and website to help British Columbians make wise choices to stop the spread of invasive species.

“The new PlantWise app and website lets the user easily look up their growing zone or region and see which plants are most appropriate,” says Gail Wallin of the Invasive Species Council of British Columbia. The mobile app can be downloaded at www.beplantwise.ca or from your phone’s app store.
