f you’ve been given an orchid as a gift only to have it drop all its leaves and blooms then you might think orchids are temperamental and difficult to grow. In actuality, cultivating orchids can be easy if you match the orchid with the correct environment. There are approximately 27,000 different species of orchids and they grow upon every continent except for Antarctica. In addition, there are about 100,000 hybrids and cultivars. The numbers are dizzying, but if you are able to mimic an orchid’s natural habitat then you have a great chance of having a lovely plant that blooms once or twice a year for years to come.

Winters, especially when they are severe, can be hard for wild birds. The food sources that were plentiful in the spring and summer have either died or gone dormant. Snow often covers the ground hiding potential food sources, and their water supply is often frozen. Birds given high quality, high-fat foods in the winter to help them generate enough body heat, have a better chance of survival.

You took your houseplants to the patio when the weather started warming up, giving them fresh air and sunlight, but now that the evenings have begun to cool down, you need to prepare to bring them back indoors.

It is easy to create or convert your garden into a private retreat for native butterflies. Butterflies use plants during each stage of their life cycle - egg, larva (caterpillar), pupa (chrysalis) and adult (butterfly).
