Explaining WHY natives?!
I'm hoping a lot of people will chime in here. I've got some friends that don't understand the WHY (as in why I'm planting natives and being extremly picky) natives approach. I try to explain, but they still don't seem to get it. Today I was talking to a friend (on the phone) that was telling me of all the butterflies on her butterfly bush. I was trying to explain the benefit of planting something that is native. Host plant, nectar etc. I'm still learning myself, so that probably doesn't help me...and I'm not a native nazi and am not preaching, not just trying to explain:)
Would you like to help me explain it?
