It is my honor to join the team at Birds and Blooms as your Northeast Regional Reporter, and I’m excited about getting to know all of you 🙂
My specialty is creating welcoming habitats for wildlife so that you will attract more birds, butterflies, pollinators, frogs, bats, and other wildlife. I’m really looking forward to seeing your wildlife gardens and the success you’ve had in attracting different species to your yards.
The Northeast region covers:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New York
- Rhode Island
And habitats ranging from the Atlantic coastal plain, salt marsh, Piedmont, mountain, woodland, farmland, forest, and more, with soils ranging from sand, to rock, to heavy clay.
My approach is to plan gardens that use the plants that have the most benefit to wildlife as well as plants that also provide food, shelter, and safe places to bear and raise newborns. Each plant in my garden serves multiple uses for different species of wildlife.
I travel quite a bit for various speaking engagements, so I’ll be sharing various garden discoveries with you from these trips. I’m always so excited to see what other wildlife gardeners have accomplished in their gardens, and to meet other gardeners from around the country.
So let’s get to know each other. What questions do you have about attracting wildlife to your garden? What’s your favorite bird visitor? What butterflies make their home in your yard? Please leave your comments below, describing your wildlife garden for us.
