|An eye-catching display with Mini Moo© cards to raise awareness for the Native Seed Gardeners program.|
I had been feeling very guilty about the six plants I'd received from the program (three of the Asclepias and three of a Liatris) because my plants hadn't produced seed. I know, don't count your chickens before they hatch, but the Asclepias hadn't even formed pods before this year, despite blooming beautifully. I had been thinking it was me, that I was doing something wrong, which is why I'm so thrilled and relieved.
If you live and garden in Northeastern Illinois, participate in this great native plant program. If not, find a similar program in your area, or start one. It's a great way to help out the environment and all those creatures that depend on it.
