Here is an interesting perspective from Toby Hemenway on: Should you or shouldn’t you grow native plants in your yard. He is a powerful advocate of native plants. And, at the same time, is concerned that the passions of some other native plant advocates might lead down a path that is not as good for native plants. Specifically, the planting of exclusively native plants vs. planting of an edible garden.
Have a look and let us know what you think.
