Abstract

Evaluates the use of sawdust in potting media as a method of controlling nitrogen leaching from potted plants of Coreopsis lanceolata and Rudbeckia hirta. Sawdust had little to no effect on growth of either species. Fertilizer had a greater effect on R. hirta than on C. lanceolata. Sawdust and fertilizer had no effect on nitrogen leaching.
