In many parts of the Northern Hemisphere right now The 2015 theme for Earth Day is “It’s Our Turn to Lead.” People all over the world engage in activities like recycling, cleaning up parks, or planting trees. How can you lead by planting wildflowers? Wildflower plantings are able to survive and even thrive with less fertilizer and pesticides. Once established, they can usually succeed with just one inch of water per week. Wildflowers can be uniquely suited to a specific environment, requiring less gardener intervention and a more “natural” appearance. So this Earth Day, take the lead and plan and plant a wildflower garden.
