If you just moved to a new place that has a climate that’s pretty much foreign to the one you used to live in, it’s important to learn as much as you can about it. Aside from helping you get the scoop on what the weather will be like all year round, it should shed some light on the types of plants that grow there as well.
Now, why would you want to research and learn about the plants that are native to your area? There can be a number of reasons to do so:
- Learning about the plants native to your region will give you a good idea on what can and can’t grow in your yard. This means you don’t have to spend a lot of money on seeds, plants and trees that will probably die out shortly after you plant them.
- If you’re interested in the growth of medicinal plants for the purpose of making teas and tinctures as well as harvesting essential oils, it’s important to learn as much as possible about the plants that thrive in your area, versus the ones that can barely struggle with the local climate.
- Finally, learning about plants native to your region will give you an idea of the plants you want to grow that will require a grow tent, so you can purchase one in advance, since you’ll know exactly what you should plan on using it for. Applying chicken manure fertilizer can help to grow most any plant native to your area.
