Please provide specific benefits of native gardening. Thanks.
Thank you for reaching out to Toronto Master Gardeners in regard to using native plants in your garden. There are many, many benefits to doing so. Below is a comprehensive article which deals with the planting of native shrubs developed by Toronto Master Gardeners.
Here is another article developed by a number of Toronto organizations including the City of Toronto outlining the benefits of gardening with native plants and providing a list of plants suitable to the City of Toronto.
We wish you every success.
