Making Your Own Backyard Habitat


Planning a home or farm Pollinator Habitat Garden is relatively easy.  If everyone planted just one, 100 square foot plot with one-third  milkweed and two-thirds nectar bearing plants, the benefit to pollinators would be tremendous.  Want to help?  Here are some suggested plant lists and planting layouts to help get you started.  The following links will take you to a document or a website with information on plant selection and how to plant a "Backyard Habitat".  Monarchs need nectar during the entire migration season.
