Why use native plants
It all comes down to this: every little bit does, indeed, help the Chesapeake. We have all read providing habitat is good for local pollinators and birds. Native plants are, hands down, the fastest way there. Non-native plants just don’t provide the same type or quality of food.
Add native plants to your balcony container, a small bed in your townhouse garden or a large section of your one acre lot, and you will make a difference in our Chesapeake landscape. You will create habitat, grow high quality seeds and produce the nectar local pollinators and birds are seeking.
Best of all – your garden, no matter its size, will feel more alive and be more interesting! Please check out these tools to get started or expand upon what you are already doing!
