Since I moved to a home with a backyard and once again have the ability to commune directly with nature. The size of our flower gardens has grown, propagating the spread of native flora by seed and transplant. We purchased potted plants from greenhouses that employ sustainable practices, such as Integrated Pest Management.
We started with a small garden, over the years, quadrupling in size and changing into permaculture growing beds. Weeds, or as they are called in my garden, “Plants Formerly Known As Weeds” are allowed to grow alongside vegetables, seeded and planted flowers.
