Maria’s recommendations for border gardens
-Have a plan!
-Add 50% compost and 50% loam to each hole to provide essential nutrients for continuous, long-term delivery of critical nutrition for strong roots, foliage and blooms
-Use low-maintenance, drought-resistant pollinator plants
-Add mulch to suppress weeds and hold moisture
-Combine horizontal and vertical flower shapes for visual interest (ex: Agastache and Echinecea)
-Repeat patterns to create a flowing border
To create a functioning wildlife habitat to attract nesting native songbirds, bees and butterflies, consider planting:
