Markham's nursery is a valuable asset to our gardens and community, so I thought it appropriate to include their plant sales on our events calendar. Biota's plants won't be there, but what they have to offer compliments our gardens.
Flowering perennials and natives are great companions for our food gardens, as they attract beneficial insects, butterflies, birds and lizards, and keep them fed and sheltered. They also keep the soil lifecycle healthy and help choke out weeds.
Markham has a good selection of pollinator plants that you won't find in the average nursery, and they're grown on the premises by knowledgable, enthusiastic people. I love supporting their nursery and think you'll love the interesting variety they have.
