I grow a number of native plants in my yard in Somerville, MA; including Joe Pyeweed, Swamp Milkweed, Echinachea, Rhudbekia, Solidago (Golden Rod), Wild Asters, Solomon Seal, Violets & Viiolas, other native wildflowers and more. These natives attract many species of good insects (bees, small wasps, lady bugs) and of course some bad insects. Monarch, Painted Lady butterflies, and song birds also visit.
I continually add new varieties of natives, let the plants self propogate via seeds and roots. And add organic compost.

My passion encompasses a love of nature and it's flora and fauna, professional organic gardening, helping people get organized and recycle their papers and unwanted items, plus a concern for the environment. I look forward to participating. Judy
