Plant Smart with Connecticut Native Plants.

Planting native plants in Connecticut or your specific state is a smart move because these plants need less watering, fertilizer and pesticides to flourish. The second huge benefit is that they support the local wildlife providing food and shelter to not only birds but insects, butterflies, bees and ground animals.

Fill bird feeder and feed the birds for a day, plant native plants and feed birds for years.

Wildlife habitat needs cover to survive, cluster plants creating thickets are good as well as evergreen trees and bushes that provide year round cover.

Depending on the region you live in, rainfall, earth components, climate will all have an effect on your garden and yard. Planting Native Plants can help diversify the seasonal food source and cover for wildlife in your area. As well native plants are easier to take care and need less extra watering, fertilizer and pesticides if at all any.

For here in Connecticut some great native plants that provide berries as food in the fall, winter and spring are Highbush Blueberry, Red Chokeberry, Huckleberry and Sweet Pepper Bush.  Below is a list of Seasonal Food and Cover Sources for the Connecticut Habitat.

David, this is a good idea to decorate with native plants. It seems that they would be much healthier than 'foreigners'.
