How Does Your Garden Grow? 

A discussion with Kent Petterson

Gardens of Terrace Horticultural Books began in 2001. Our gardening has evolved over the years with more and more emphasis on native plants and their cultivars. The game changer ideas posited by Doug Tallemy in Bringing Nature Home have influenced what we do. In 2019 we turned to the city boulevard in front of 503 St. Clair with the assistance of the State program Lawns to Legumes as administered by Metro Blooms we installed a pollinator garden with great success. This year we continued the effort expanding to the side boulevard. Much has been learned and we will share some of what we have learned along the way.
