This presentation focuses on the native plants of New England. Plants native to our region are easier to maintain, better able to withstand New England weather and may offer better resistance to deer and rabbits. The trees, shrubs, and perennials that evolved here can grow here with much less input from you.
Reduce your workload while creating a paradise for the native birds and pollinators.
