Many thanks!! My husband and I are really enjoying increasing the Michigan native plants in our yard. It's better for the birds and butterflies who already live here.You are such an inspiration!
Around the Detroit area.Where are you located in MI ?
Aww, I'm sorry to hear that! I've had trouble with a few plants, but most of my hubby's plants in the backyard have been nibbled on by rabbits, mostly just during the winter. All of my tort plants were fine because they were caged off. Maybe try more native plants? I know milkweed is great for monarchs but not even deer will touch it. There are some native California milkweed species, according to USDA Plants: https://plants.usda.gov/core/profile?symbol=ASCLE And if they seed like ours did this past year, you won't run out of milkweed any time soon!I tried last year but everything died!
It either got eaten by rabbits, we had broken sprinklers and 100 degrees days. They never had a chance.
I was so sad. Plus, I spent a fortune on the plants!
Sweet! Thanks for sharing! We're very concerned about our honeybees over here!! An important lesson to help plant more native wildflowers in your area.If anyone is interested I have several perennial plants that are SUPER butterfly magnets. I would be happy to share...(free)! Also check out Cheerios's "Save the bees", they are giving away free seeds to attract honey bees.
Awesome! Is that globe flower Alium?Here are a few pictures of my happy little visitors!
Looks lovely! I was about to ask you how gardening was going for you this year. I can't wait till ours looks like that.And..more of my gardens
