Designing Native Gardens
08:36

Native gardens are lower maintenance because you don’t have to do a ton of enhancement to your soil as most natives thrive and adapt really well. Native plantings will spread and provide their own mulch and green cover as they age. Native plants are often tall and different than a more structured ornamental garden, so artwork or structure in the space helps people understand it is a purposefully designed area.

The Impact of Native Gardens

Right now as we move into our 50th year of garden for wildlife, we have a goal to move into a million new gardens that we can track through our DIY combinations of plants that perform really well with really high numbers for wildlife. We have tracked pollinator garden hotspots that create stepping stones of habitat across urban and suburban areas. Two of the areas that we saw where bee species numbers reached a real pinnacle were in the desert southwest and east within the smokey mountain region.

Growing Hydrangeas
05:03

Science and flowers are two of my favorite things. Hydrangeas make fun experiments because the color of the flower depends on aluminum uptake which is greatly influenced by the PH of the soil. Blue flowers are formed with high aluminum uptake, where an absence produces pink flowers. My favorite color is periwinkle, so I try to find the middle ground.

Sash bags are somewhat inexpensive - you can get a pack of 100 for between $5.00 - $10.00 and are perfect for small-scale gardeners who want to maximize their production organically. You can use bags around fruit like berries, tomatoes, and citrus to keep pests away from the goods. For seed collectors, you can affix the bags around flowers to allow the seeds to fully develop without being eaten or blowing away.
