Marsh Grass & Storm Water Plant

Farm: Garner’s Landscaping & Plant Stand Inc.
Operator: Jackie Garner
Production: Horticultural products
Location: Newport, Carteret County, NC
Garner grows wetland plants in rented tobacco greenhouses with submerged trays in the float beds. Renting offers immediate greenhouse space without purchasing expensive land and provides income for former tobacco growers. Urban development and wetland restoration projects require the use of these plants in tidal areas and stormwater runoff ponds.
