YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Attract birds and butterflies and many other pollinators. They need gardens, as their habitat is threatened by development and use of chemicals in the landscape. Butterfly Oasis Nursery does not use chemical pesticides or herbicides.
YOUR GARDEN SUCCESS
If you grow mostly Native plants you'll have a successful and beautiful garden full of life and motion. Whether starting a new garden or adding natives to an existing garden, you will be much rewarded!
FOR NEW GARDENERS
Our plants are not fussy. Just pay attention to whether they like sun or shade, moist or dry. They grow mostly without added fertilizer. If a plant wants something special, we will tell you.
MOST IMPORTANT: Don't apply pesticides or herbicides on your garden, or nearby lawn.
A COUPLE MORE TIPS:
Take it easy on the mulch. The best mulch is the leaves. Commercial mulch is not necessarily organic, and also, may prevent native plants from increasing by seeds.
ALSO: Reduce that lawn size! Lawn grass doesn't support pollinators.
FOR WINTER: Study up on native plants - if you can't go outside to garden, you can learn from the many good sources online or in the library.
HELPING MONARCH BUTTERFLIES
