Once again, I'll be giving a talk at the Native Plant Gardening Workshop in beautiful Divide, Montana, co-hosted by the Calypso Chapter of the Montana Native Plant Society and the Big Hole Watershed Weed Committee. Thanks again to Catherine Cain for organizing the workshop, this should be a wonderful event, on April 2. Last year about 80 people came out for the workshop and I look forward to attending it again.
My presentation will be a follow-up to the talk I gave last year and my talk will focus on gardening for wildlife, including bird houses, feeders (natural and home made), pest (squirrels, starlings, house sparrows, etc...) control, pollinators, creating habitat, and of course native plants.
Also, Kathy Settevendemie from Blackfoot Native Plants Nursery will talk about garden design, choosing the right native plants, proper installation, maintenance and pests.
And I am sure there will be a lot of great native plants for sale from Blackfoot Native Plant Nursery and Catherine Cain's nursery Southwest Montana Landscapes. Also, if it is like last year, there will be a lot of vendors selling things for the garden like seeds, including native plant seeds from Native Ideals Seed Company.
