Gardening for Wildlife Month
- A diverse landscape using native plants can support an abundance of wildlife and can especially help declining populations, like pollinators;
- Using native plants conserves energy since they are acclimated to the local climate, requiring less water and maintenance once established;
- Attractive plantings and the wildlife drawn to them create artistic and educational opportunities; and
- You can share in the food abundance! Herbs like mints and parsley attract butterflies and fruit trees and shrubs attract lots of birds and mammals.
Throughout the month, I’ll be posting more info about resources and specific plants for specific wildlife. Feel free to let me know what you’d like to see here.
