This year, I’m going to buy more plants that provide food and shelter for pollinators.
This is an adaptable native tree with no serious disease or pest problems and a lovely branching pattern.
This genus of plants are commonly called anise hyssops and are in the mint family.
Deep-rooted native plants can absorb many inches of rain per day, dramatically reducing run-off into streets.
Some of the plants we buy for our gardens are pretreated with neonicotinoid pesticides that are harmful to bees.
