Why use native plants
Add native plants to your balcony window box or containers, a small bed in your townhouse garden or a large section of your one acre lot, and experts tell us we will tangibly make a difference in our Chesapeake landscape. You will create habitat, grow high quality seeds and produce nectar and food local pollinators and birds need to thrive.
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.
