Gus Says: Go Native!


By Gus, the Blog Frog

Question: How do I use less water and chemicals while still keeping my landscaping and garden beautiful?

Solution: Go Native!

Why: California native plants are basically made to grow here, so they need less water, less maintenance, less fertilizer and are more pest resistant. They even benefit our native wildlife.

How: Ask your local nursery which plants are native to California and especially our area here in Northern California. Or search out a nursery that specializes in native plants like Cornflower Farms in Elk Grove. Visit http://www.cornflowerfarms.com/.

Quick Bite: Get inspired and learn more by visiting the UC Davis Arboretum or check out the botanical gardens in San Francisco or at UC Berkeley.

Find more information from the California Native Plant Society at http://www.cnps.org/.
