thank you for the great tips. there's just one point i disagree with. native plants are often more susceptible to pests than exotics, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. in fact, the native geography of a plant can be determined by the relative number of pests which feast on it. this is not just a theory, but has been used to solve some botanical mysteries surrounding the origin of plants found across the globe. the more different critters feasting on a plant, the closer it is to it's native home. the beauty of using natives is that over thousands and even millions of years of evolving w/ the same kinds of neighbors, a very delicate balance has been reached where each species has a chance for thriving, but not overtaking the others. i call this 'harmony' and it's become so rare in our world out of whack.
