As we wrap up our series on Native Plant Nurseries, there are a few links that some might also find handy, featured below. Along with an invasive plant list, I have added a link for companion planting, and a general link for the novice herb gardener. With spring coming, I am anxious to get my hands dirty, and to add to my own pollinator garden, which is turning out to be quite the experience! In just two years, I have turned my yard back around (it was once covered with bees, but the population had dwindled so badly, it was becoming hopeless) to where it is a joy to walk outside and watch the abundance of bees coming back, along with the butterflies, and some of our missing songbirds. Of course, it goes without saying that the hummingbirds have increased, also, as they enjoy the natural food sources as much, if not more, than our feeders.
