If you’re a gardener and are considering adding some native plants to your palette, you might be asking: How is gardening with natives different from typical landscape gardening? What are the benefits and bonuses of incorporating natives in your garden? After enjoying Rory Klick’s presentation, you’ll have a much better idea. You’ll hear a different way of thinking about gardening that takes into account the way plants naturally grow together.
Register to hear Rory Klick talk about using Upper Midwest native plant communities as models for habitat gardens. Learn what a plant community is, what a habitat garden is, and why these concepts are important. Get acquainted with some specific plant communities and learn to evaluate a community’s fit with the conditions on your site. Having a palette of suitable plants can help you be successful as a native gardener. Beginners and old hands will find this session helpful.
