Ask a gardener these days what's on their short list of upcoming projects, and they'll likely name the addition or expansion of a butterfly or pollinator garden. That's because the loss of their native habitats to urban sprawl and the widespread use of herbicides in commercial farming has decimated many of the plants these insects need to survive. As gardeners often do, they're now rising up in force in an effort to restore lost habitats across the country, starting in their own backyards. In this episode, Joe works alongside national experts to show ways to attract and help restore populations of these threatened insects. At the same time, he'll be increasing the beauty of landscapes with native plants that beneficial insects depend on.
