Your yard is more than a combination of trees, shrubs and perennials: it’s a complex system where all living things are connected, which contributes to species diversity by attracting and supporting more birds, butterflies and beneficial insects.

Kim Eierman, founder of EcoBeneficial, a horticulture consulting and communications company, will explain how design choices, plant selection, and maintenance practices can make a huge difference in creating a beautiful, healthy ecosystem.

Dividing Your Perennials

This week we have a special emphasis on dividing and propagating plants. This is a great time of year to insure that next summer is even more beautiful than this year. It's also the best way to get free plants, and makes it easier to plant spring blooming bulbs!
