Staff Pick: Bringing Nature Home

Book Cover

Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in our Gardens by Douglas W. Tallamy

A very informative nonfiction book for anyone interested in nature and the environment. The review on the back cover describes it well: “We all hear that insects and animals depend on plants, but in Bringing Nature Home, Douglas Tallamy presents a powerful and compelling illustration of how the choices we make as gardeners can profoundly impact the diversity of life in our yards, towns and on our planet. This important work should be required reading for anyone who every put shovel to earth.” – William Cullina, Director of Horticultural Research for the New England Wild Flower Society.
