Mason State Nursery: a model for prairie plant production

Abstract:

More than 250 native Illinois plant species have been grown either bareroot or in containers at Mason State Nursery. Seedling production is facilitated by collecting seeds from natural populations and by seed production areas at the nursery, and an extensive array of seed processing equipment. Some propagation techniques are included.
