Embracing the Weeds: The Joys of Gardening for Insects with Native Plants
Baz Conlin is a lifelong naturalist based in Peterborough County. For the last 5 years, he has been gardening with native plants in an effort to support and sustain a wide variety of insects.
Many of these plants (ex milkweed, fireweed, jewelweed, Joe-Pye Weed etc) were once considered undesirable, even noxious, but we know better now! But how should we incorporate these plants into our landscape?
Where do we get plants? And what native plants attract the most beneficial insects? Baz will be sharing his mistakes and successes in his journey to answer these questions!
