Crucial conservation work begins at home -- Designing native nirvana -- Selecting the right plants -- Soil that's more than dirt -- Cultivating a green thumb -- Multiplication by division, and other propagation methods. For many people, the most tangible and beneficial impact they can have on the environment is right in their own yard. Aimed at beginning and veteran gardeners alike, Real Gardens Grow Natives is a stunningly photographed guide that helps readers plan, implement, and sustain a retreat at home that reflects the natural world. Gardening with native plants that naturally belong and thrive in the Pacific Northwest's climate and soil not only nurtures biodiversity, but provides a quintessential Northwest character and beauty.
