Bringing Nature Home author Dr. Douglas Tallamy, University of Delaware Professor & Chair of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology, makes the powerful link between native plants and wildlife for a future of abundant partners in biodiversity. On tour, the Gardening Club at Oak Hill Elementary keeps busy growing food, tending butterfly plants and restoring habitat to care for their school and wildlife. Daphne explains how powerful childhood garden memories influence her today. Her plant of the week is annual borage, with edible leaves and lovely flowers to attract bees. John Dromgoole takes a stroll through The Natural Gardener’s butterfly garden to illustrate how to attract crowds through the year.
