FAQ

Why plant Native plants?

We encourage the planting of Ontario’s Native species because of their:

  • Greater resistance to native insects and diseases
  • Adaptability to Ontario’s environmental conditions
  • Lower establishment and maintenance…yes they are easy to care for!
  • Ability to attract and encourage Ontario songbirds, butterflies flora & fauna

Create a forest like garden around your home that is distinctly elegant and natural.
