Here is the May 20th update on my pollinator garden. Every year the garden is different depending on what comes back.
This year was really scary because of the freeze . I was not sure what might be completely dead.
But, and I love this part…90% of my garden was planted with native plants! They are sturdy!! I did have a few larger bushes that have not shown up and probably won’t.
But the garden is still a beauty. Everything is about five weeks behind its normal time to bloom. The vines are just now popping up, and some plants that like more sun and hot weather have not started to bloom just yet.
This is why planting things that are native to your area keeps the budget low. They come back!
