Most people now realize that our food supply would be totally compromised without bees, butterflies, wasps, bats, and other pollinators. The very existence of these creatures is threatened by climate change, decreasing habitat, and pesticide use. Gardens planted with native plants can make a difference in slowing the decline of polinators. This talk by Ruth Clausen focuses on pollinator-friendly natives that provide food and habitat for larvae and adults.
A horticulturist trained in England, Ruth has lived and worked in the United States for many years. She has taught and lectured widely over her long career. Former horticulture editor for Country Living Gardener, she has written several books, including Perennials for American Gardens, co-authored with the late Nicolas H. Ekstrom. Others include Dreamscaping and 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants.
