A big HELLO to all you ‘patcher’s out there, it is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this community.
My name is Louise Schaefer. Along with my business partner Sue Tantsits, we founded Edge of the Woods Native Plant Nursery, located in the Fogelsville area. This is our tenth season in business.
We hope to post here through the growing season about ways you can incorporate native plants into your landscape no matter how big or small.
Why are native plants important?
Native plants play an important role in our local ecosystem; they do a job that can’t be done by just any plant, providing habitat for wildlife, bees, insects, bugs, birds, butterflies and small mammals.
They are also beautiful to look at through the seasons, and provide entertainment too! We love looking out the window at all the birds and insects that flit and float in and out of our native plantings.
Please let us know your questions about native plants, we’re looking forward to a growing conversation with you.
