This book is seriously amazing. I LOVE that it lists a few complementary plants in every plant profile!!!!! You'd think all gardening books would do that but it's really pretty rare. The author also includes these great sample garden layouts... so good!! It could not be easier. AND a visual index to identifying pollinators??? Jesus Christ. This book is incredible. I am buying myself a copy right away!

This is a model to which all gardening books and nature guides should aspire. The color photographs are well done, useful, and integrated with the text in a pleasing manner. The maps and charts are clear and easy to use. The book focuses on the interactions between North American native plants and the insects that pollinate them, use them as larval food sources, or as nectar sources. In addition to information on identifying and growing native plants in a variety of environments, the book also c ...more

This book has become the blueprint for my native gardening. I have established gardens for butterflies, mason bees, and bumblebees based on the information I received from Heather's book. I was able to meet her at a native plant workshop, where she was one of the featured speakers. Her enthusiasm for six-legged creatures is contagious! Thus book is a welcome reference for all people interested in establishing "corridors" to support the birds and the bees and reestablish native ecosystems.

I don't often splurge on books when I'm at events and workshops, but I have no regrets about purchasing this book. Holm has written a beautiful handbook for gardeners interested in helping native insects and planting more native flowers in their backyards. I have used her book every time I make a new addition to my own suburban homestead. It's is beautiful and easy to read. I am always able to quickly locate information about the insects and flowers, and I sometimes find myself flipping through ...more

She studied horticulture and biology at the University of Guelph and later web programming and digital design at Seneca college, ...more
