Also are volunteers only those from seed? or do spread tubers and roots outside of original planting area count as volunteers?
- A brief description on how you encouraged the volunteers and selected the wild plants (ie mulch, selective chop and drop)

So I think a wild plant in a traditional grass lawn probably doesn't count. I think two wild plants that show up in a flower bed (assuming a polyculture of many flower varieties) would count. I think wild plants that show up in a diverse "weedy" lawn that isn't mostly grass might count as a polyculture but I'm not sure.
