    That’s a great idea!

    Seeing how I always have something or other that I need to be doing, it would be a great help if i didn’t have to put too much care into my flowers and they will still flourish!

    Thank you so much.

    One of the best books on this subject is “Bringing nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants” by Douglas W. Tallamy, who is an ecology and entomology professor at the University of Delaware. It’s written for non-scientists, and clearly explains the how-to, and the importance, of building habitat for our native wildlife species via planting native regional plants. This is a great way to save labor and to help replace habitat, so much of which has been lost to development.
