‘Native Friendly Trees, Shrubs & Perennials’ Presentation at Sophia’s Portico

This month Judith will be giving a presentation at Fort Wayne’s Sophia’s Portico on the use of native plants in gardens. This program will briefly touch on the origin of ideas about gardens which come mainly from Europe. You will learn how to help our environment with native plants and will be enticed to plant these wonderfully effective, functional members of our region. Come discover the interactions between plants and insects which hold keys to supporting our pollinators. Fall is a great time to learn how to be apart of this environmentally friendly growing trend.

The presentation costs $15 to attend and will be held on October 17 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

For Homeowners

INPAWS Articles & Information

The quest to promote native plants in our area is strongly supported by the Indiana Native Plant & Wildflower Society, INPAWS and they have many helpful resources on their website. They have information on plants native to Indiana, which are the plants we promote in our landscaping projects. If you are interested in “Landscaping with Plants Native to Indiana” check out this PDF brochure from their website. The INPAWS website also houses an extensive library of native plant photos, Landscape Worthy Indiana Natives, which provides examples of what these natives look like in the wild.
