Resources on Indigenous plants

Growing indigenous plants is one way to connect with the natural environment and the history of our land.

Indigenous plants are a great option to grow as they suit local soils and our climate. They also have a low impact on our natural environment. Indigenous plants also tend to use less water and attract native birds and wildlife.

These resources have designs, tips, and detailed species information for growing indigenous plants.
