Recommended Plant List (printable)
Great video by Doug Tallamy, author of “Bringing Nature Home”. Well worth the 4 minutes of your time!
After many months, seems like decades, of blood, sweat, tears, and near mutiny, the recommended plant list for Boerne and surrounding counties is ready for its debut! This list is, and will continue to be, an ever-evolving project. It is not meant to be exhaustive, although that would be the effect it had on the committee members on numerous occasions. We welcome your input and experience, and encourage you to contact us with any comments and suggestions you may have. Primary committee members include Wilt Shaw, Suzanne Young, Betty Dunn, and Emily Weiner. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward any comments to the appropriate committee person(s).
