Bugs, Birds and Bees.
These little lives are as important to the plants as they are to. the planet. Biodiversity, lots of everything keeps the systems healthy and the gardens in balance and harmony. Growing up we were taught that bugs were bad and plants needed to look like a perpetual perfect picture. Gardens are wild and a little unkempt, by nature. The spiders eat all kinds of bugs, bees and the birds eat all the winged insects, because they are food. It is a wild world. Our gardens are nature tamed, but when we relax, leave the leaves and limit our deadheading, well, that changes the space to habitat. Easy to learn and a great way to garden. You can do this!! Leading by example, we really can make a difference starting in our own backyards.
The little bits of life on the margins are disappearing everyday. We are taking away their habitat. Excessive and unnecessary mowing and insecticides are some of the biggest culprits. As a society of humans we need to work together, starting in our own gardens. Leading by example. We need wild now more than ever. What can you do? Click here!
