Thanks to the Montana Natural History Center for hosting the native plant gardening workshop- I hope everyone was inspired to start gardening.
Here are links to blog posts of mine that we discussed:
- Deer resistant plants- with a link to a list
- How to remove a lawn- step by step instructions
- How to make an urbanite path- step by step instructions
- Squirrel control
- Birdhouse basics- lots of information
- Chickadee cam!- new to the blog, watch live, streaming video of a chickadee nest in our garden (Warning: this is totally addictive)
You can search for any topic on the blog- make yourself at home on the blog and let me know if you have any questions.
