Shade gardening can be challenging, forcing many of us to settle for old standby plants that do nothing more than cover the soil. Learn how to transform those overlooked shadows into glowing features by choosing plants with colorful blooms and foliage that thrive in the shade.
We’ve all heard about the decline of honeybees over the last few years, but many of us don’t realize that wild pollinators, such as native bees and butterflies, are declining as well. Become part of the movement to improve the plight of our pollinators by providing a variety of pollinator-preferred plants, offering sources for water and nesting, and using pesticides sparingly or not at all.
