The coast trillium is one of the most endearing PNW native plants, admired for its dainty white petals with golden yellow anthers.
Water conservation is essential in creating an eco-friendly garden. What are some easy ways to save water in our gardens and landscapes?
One of the best ways to save water is picking plants that will thrive in your yard. For many sites, native plants are a good choice because they are adapted to our dry summers.
Whatever plant you choose, remember that most plants need supplemental water for the first couple of summers. If you picked wisely, your plants should be able to survive most summers without watering.
Although a stunning native plant, Skunk Cabbage needs too much water for most home landscapes. Pick the right plants for your site for low maintenance bliss.
Why should PNW gardeners include native plants in designing their outdoor spaces?
Native plants can provide your yard a beautiful aesthetic with a Northwest feel. We are fortunate to have an amazing array of species in the Northwest to choose for our home landscapes.
As a bonus, our local birds prefer native plants. Having birds visit your yard is like having a free, no spray pest control service.
April is Earth Month. What is your favorite tip or action to help make every day Earth Day?
Spending time outdoors learning to identify local plants and animals is a wonderful way to celebrate our precious planet.
People tend to value what they know and learning the way plants, animals and people all rely on one another is a great way to motivate people to take action. As a bonus, being outdoors is fun and good for personal well-being also.
If you need ideas and inspiration on how to create an inviting eco-friendly outdoor space that’s high on sustainability and low on maintenance, Greg’s webinar is for you! This free Cascade Gardener Class offered by the Cascade Water Alliance is sponsored by Molbak’s Garden + Home. This is an online Zoom event. Registration is Required.
