They will also have spray-free, clean, home-grown herbs on offer. Whether your garden has sunny or shady conditions, you will find wonderful plants for your garden, along with the chance to get some expert advice on native plants. Come and meet Dan and Bridget!
To paraphrase Doug Tallamy – the wild creatures we enjoy seeing and hearing, will not be here in the future if they have no food and no place to live. Native plants provide food for native creatures. Most insects can only eat plants that share an evolutionary history and insects are the vital food source for many species of birds and animals. Home gardeners can play an important role in preserving biodiversity by what we choose to
plant in our gardens and yards.
