Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Professional plant people are recommending the use of more native plants in residential landscapes. Because they are well adapted to the conditions in their region, natives are typically more self-reliant than plants introduced from elsewhere. Tough and attractive, they require very little care. Some examples are: New England aster, bee balm, coralbells, black-eyed Susan, butterfly weed, goldenrod, purple coneflower, joe-pye weed, and Virginia creeper.
