As cottagers, our natural environment is incredibly important. You can help by landscaping responsibly!
Beautiful plants can be invasive, too. Luckily, there are some resources available to those who want to plant native options!
Cottage Life said, "Fortunately, the Grow Me Instead Nursery Recognition Program offers a straightforward way for cottagers to ensure they’re not inadvertently planting an invasive. It offers alternatives to invasives, based on similar style and required growing conditions and also includes a list of nurseries committed to selling only native plants."
