Gardening with natives is a topic covered in our Master Gardener Program. Native plants attract pollinators, as seen here with our Bee Balm/Monarda didyma.

With our Extension Master Gardener program, you will receive research-based knowledge on all aspects of gardening! Granted, the Master Gardener program is designed for people from all walks of life. Whether you are a beginner or have gardened all your life!
