Summary
In Bringing Nature Home, Doug Tallamy encourages the use of native plants in gardening. This book asks and answers questions for modern gardeners inclined to good stewardship. How can we adjust our planting palette to be both beautiful and envitonmentally useful? How much more does a local oak species contribute to habitat richness then an out-of-ecological-context exotic tree? What do violets and fritillary butterflies, or pawpaws and zebra swallowtails have in common? Where might tomorrow's species come from?
Summary
An introduction to sustainable, ecological gardening explains how to incorporate a variety of native plants into a backyard environment in order to create a healthy ecosystem that provides food and shelter for local wildlife of all kinds and includes helpful lists of garden-worthy native plants for every region of the United States
