OUR PLANTS ARE A BARGAIN Most of the ferns and wildflowers are equal to 1/2 gal to gal pot size and are not the tiny plugs many firms sell.
…..
…..
WHY GROW WILD FLOWERS? Wild flowers are as beautiful, vibrant, showy and lasting as fancy perennials that will cost you much more elsewhere & most are easily grown. You don’t need a wooded setting for most & many thrive in average garden soil. Another reason to grow them: due to habitat destruction wildflowers and other natives do not grow in abundance as they once did. It’s a fact nature has been changed by man, plants no longer spread as they once did & planting wildflowers helps nature distribute them. Recent articles wrongly say wildflowers can’t or shouldn’t be grown in gardens. Hogwash! If they aren’t spread around by good gardeners we may hasten their demise. Sadly development won’t stop.
