However, plenty of pot-sized plants can provide a bountiful feast for birds and insects, which means that you can help your city’s local wildlife thrive. Visit American Native Plants to choose the best natives for your project. Whether your goal is the assist the local bee population or simply to establish a beautiful entryway, the professionals at the nursery can help you pick the right plants for the job. 

Work With Your Space 

Take some time to study the strengths of your apartment or city dwelling. Where will the plants receive the most sunlight? If your home remains shady during the majority of the day, choose plants that do not require direct sunlight. Create a map of your property and bring it to American Native Plants so we can help you choose the right natives. 

Pick Your Containers 

Choosing your containers requires a bit of strategy since they will play into the overall aesthetic of your garden. While some gardeners prefer to purchase new terracotta pots, others experiment with recycling! Buckets, olive oil cans, and coffee tins make great planters, just remember to punch a few holes into the bottom of the vessel. Discuss your container ideas with an expert at American Native Plants. Some natives may require specific growing dimensions.
