Native Perennials in the Garden; Planting for the Pollinators

It’s almost spring and we’ve all got a hankering to get back into our gardens. Instead of grabbing the same old perennials off the garden center shelves, consider going the native route. Native perennials support an enormous amount of biodiversity; the pollinators they attract and feed are tangible proof of the good we can do. We will discuss the importance of planting with a diversity of species, preserving and encouraging the natives we already have growing around us, the benefits of the “right plant in the right place” principle, and how to source plants that provide the best ecological fit. Gardening with native perennials is an important ecological investment we can’t afford to miss.
