With Native Plant Gardening for Birds, Bees & Butterflies: Southeast, by acclaimed author and expert entomologist Jaret C. Daniels, you can plan your landscape to invite beloved backyard visitors to your garden in northern Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The presence of birds, bees, and butterflies suggests a healthy, Earth-friendly place. These most welcome guests also bring joy to those who appreciate watching them. Now you can turn your yard into a perfect habitat that attracts them and, more importantly, helps them thrive.
Learn how to landscape and create pollinator gardens with native plants.
The book begins with an in-depth introduction to native pollinators and birds. A “field guide” section features more than 100 native plants that are widely available; are easy to care for; and provide great benefit to birds, bees, and butterflies.
The species are organized by level of sunlight needed and then by plant type. Each species includes full-color photographs and information about hardiness zones, what they are most likely to attract, soil requirements, light levels, and Jaret’s notes. As a bonus, the author includes blooming charts, tips on attracting specific species, and more! Plus, the invaluable garden plans and projects show you just what to do, and they can be customized to suit your own specific interests.
Plan, plant, and grow your beautiful garden—with native plants that benefit your favorite creatures to watch and enjoy.
