Grow Natives! Practical Tips for Landscaping with Native Shrubs
Grow Natives! Practical Tips for Landscaping with Native Shrubs 10:30am
In recent years, it has become more and more clear that native plants are the best choices for gardeners who want to feed, attract and provide habitat for birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators. We know now that the insects that the majority of birds need to feed their babies live selectively on our natives. Though there are many options for and benefits of using native plants in our yards–and natives are certainly well adapted to our soils and climate– it’s not always easy to figure out how to incorporate them into an existing landscape. That’s especially true when our existing garden emphasizes the traditional use of non-native foreign ornamentals that have a particular, sometimes more formal, look and feel to them.
Join Sue as she talks about how to choose the right native plants for the right locations to create beautiful gardens that are ecologically friendly and easily sustainable. She will talk about how to add a few native shrubs to existing beds to support birds and pollinators as well as principles and techniques for creating new and beautiful naturalistic plantings that aim to support more wildlife.
