Planting native plants in your garden will help the wildlife, provide you with a low-maintenance yard, and will bring beauty year round to your gardens.

Click HERE to link to our December News Bulletin. It's full of great native plant suggestions to use in your garden as alternatives to exotics you find at your local home improvement garden shop.

For example, did you know our native bees prefer native Spicebush over Forsythia?
