BOOK REVIEW: the naturescaping workbook
Beth O’Donnell Young‘s Naturescaping Workbook is an invaluable resource when planning a natural backyard oasis. I recently borrowed a copy from the library, and made a few notes about plants that feed Butterflies, Moths, Caterpillars and Beneficials (see below). Make sure to get your own copy of The Naturescaping Workbook from your library or independent bookstore to read in more detail, how to support nature in your backyard with the plants I’ve noted here!
Populus (Cottonwood, Poplar)
Prunus (Cherry, Plum)
Yucca (Adam’s Needle)
Eupatorium (Joe Pye Weed)
Monarda (Bee Balm)
