Planting a Native Garden

Beautiful native gardens enrich your surroundings while supporting local biodiversity - including pollinators and bird species. Since native plants are adapted to our local soils and climate conditions, they will also require less water and fertilizers.

There are many places to learn about planting a native garden, including nurseries that specialize in supplying plants that are native to BC.
