Why Buy Native Plants?

Native plants in your little back yard, surrounded by alleys, sidewalks, and cars, are vital fuel-supply lines to the larger natural world. Your native plants will help bolster insects that pollinate our crops, which will fuel birds, which will migrate to wild areas or farmlands, which will fuel everyone from house cats to bobcats and more.
