Trying to create a more sustainable garden? Want to attract a lot of beneficial insects? Then you need native plants!
Although we gardeners often pick plants based on their beauty (or the yummy fruit and vegetables they produce), the insects and animals that live in our yards and gardens have slightly different priorities. They need food, shelter, and a place to raise their young, and in may cases the plants that meet these needs best? Are native plants!
So if you want to create a thriving, healthy garden ecosystem (and you can learn more about those in Episode 2), native plants are a must.
