The decision on the New Green Code for Seattle, that's alarmed gardeners, nurserypeople and even urban farmers, has been postponed. Thanks to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show for posting an update late this afternoon.
The City of Seattle listened to the landscape industry, and to the many of you who commented on Plant Talk and Facebook, and they've shelved the new codes for now.
The plan is to reconsider them jointly with industry professionals in 2013.
Meanwhile, take a look at Scott Vergara's eloquent letter in support of common sense, the nursery industry and plant choice, as well as all the reaction it stirred up, here, on my blog post from August 28.
