This week is National Wildflower week, a great time to learn more about the native wildflowers of your area.
And this month is National Garden for Wildlife Month, a wonderful time to create welcoming habitat for wildlife in your garden.
Wildflowers and Wildlife. This is a great combination! When we add more native plants to our gardens, we will attract more wildlife.
And gardening for wildlife is one of the few things we can do that offers immediate gratification. Plant a host plant for butterflies and possibly have caterpillars this week.
Here’s some easy tips to celebrate the wildflowers and wildlife of your area:
- Make your garden a Certified Wildlife Habitat
- Join your local native plant society
- Learn about the birds of your area by joining your regional Audubon Society
- Add host plants for Butterflies
- Install a wildlife pond
