Gardening with Native Plants

Native plants can help us turn our gardens into beautiful, ecologically functioning plant communities. Join Angela Bowman of Bowman Gardens for an introduction to the topic, where we’ll discuss the benefits of gardening with native plants as well as:

•  a list of prairie and woodland plants that grow well in urban sites
•  how to combine plants for beauty, continuous blooming, and ecological function
•  site preparation, planting, and stewardship
