Webinar: Which Plants Should I Plant?

Grow your knowledge of native Minnesotan plants as you prepare your own gardens with MNSG's Jessy Carlson and John Bly of Metro Blooms for a free webinar hosted by Cook County Higher Education. This event is part of MNSG's project on Partnering with Local Governments for Climate Adaptation.

Adding native plants to your yard is a great idea. Native species can provide pollinator habitat, prevent erosion, filter stormwater runoff and add beauty. But how do you know which species to choose? In this 1-hour webinar, we will simplify the process of making a native garden species list. We will cover how to:

  • Clarify your project goals.
  • Identify site conditions, which will determine your species list.
  • Introduce the Blue Thumb Plant Finder, an online, Minnesota-specific, species selection tool that can provide you with a species list tailored for your project and your site.

This free event is aimed at residents of Northeast Minnesota.
