Week 24: Plant something native and green this week.
Instead of relying on imported plants, which are often sprayed withpesticidesand can carry ahefty transportation burden, shop for, and thenpot plants that are native to your region. Native plants are more likely to have evolved in your region and have a greater chance of thriving in local soils. They’re also better prepared to withstand whatever regional weather comes their way, according to theNational Wildlife Federation(NWF). Native plants are more likely to attract birds and butterflies to your home, too. Check out the NWF’sNative Plant Finder tool, which provides a list of local plants, ranked by the number of species they support.
