Spring in Sonoma County
Mulch in Your Landscape
Time to check for garden pests!
|Summer is a good time to check your garden for pests. Start with regular monitoring and correct pest identification. Then, by considering information about the pest and environmental factors, you can decide whether the pest can be tolerated or whether control is needed. Learn about common pests in Sonoma County here. And don’t forget about the beneficial predators that help keep pest populations in check!|
California Native Plants
|California native plants are having their day in the sun and it’s none too soon. By providing “nurseries” for local insects, food for bees, butterflies, moths, and birds, and shelter for a wide range of insects, birds, and mammals, native plants can help increase biodiversity, rebuild lost habitat, and combat climate change in our community. Your can find recommended native plants for Sonoma County here.|
In our YouTube playlist on California Native Plants, we introduce you to a number of California native plants that do well in Sonoma County gardens. From trees and grasses to flowers and shrubs, we spotlight individual natives in brief videos to show you what each plant looks like, why we love it, and how to care for it in your own garden.
