Are native plants part of your landscape or garden plans for 2017?
As a passionate spokeswoman for native plants, Peggy Anne Montgomery and I talk about how important native plants are to home gardens across America.
Peggy Anne went from studying and practicing landscape design in the Netherlands to working for reputable garden powerhouses like Bailey Nurseries and the Mount Cuba Center where she cultivated her passion for native plants. Today, Peggy Anne is the Brand Manager at American Beauties Native Plants and she’s leading the charge for bringing nature home in gardens across America by encouraging the use of native plants.
A fellow Minnesotan, Peggy Anne gave a fantastic talk about native plants at the evening reception on Day 2 of the Garden Bloggers Fling and I knew within the first five minutes that I had to get her on the show for a repeat performance. From providing a sense of place to providing wildlife habitat, what's old is new again as gardeners rediscover the wonders only native plants can provide.
