Healthy plants growing beautifully

All the plants arrived in excellent condition and have been growing rapidly, some already beginning to flower. We've added a water bowl next to them to provide drinking water and are anxiously awaiting the bees and butterflies.

Very Good Quality Plants

Plants arrived in good shape. I really like that they include a garden layout for the purchased plants. Plants have at least doubled in size.

Healthy, vigorous plants

I’m very pleased with this selection of native plants. I received healthy and vigorous plants. The coreopsis bloomed quickly about a month after planting, and the asters are in bud for a late summer bloom. Delighted.

Milkweeds and Monarchs

It did not take long for the orange Milkweed plants, Asclepias tuberosa, to flower. The Asters are growing fast. I already had Monarchs landing on my older Asclepias syriaca plants before I saw larvae. For years I have been doing my part here in my little garden in Xenia, Ohio, to encourage endangered Monarchs. Now Garden for Wildlife has enabled me to add additional plant species to encourage more insects. Thank you Garden for Wildlife. Karl
