Loss of songbird habitat, fewer Monarch butterflies, mysterious bee deaths … just a few of the reports that seem to be appearing in the news more and more frequently these days. That’s the bad news. The good news is that it’s possible to do something to restore natural habitats for birds, bees, butterflies, and other wildlife in our own landscapes and gardens.

The importance of planting native can't be stressed enough! I started a small nursery this season and I am so eager and excited to educate people on planting native!

That's good to hear. It's so important to spread the word. I wish you good success with your nursery.
I garden for the pollinators.
