  • insect hotel or a pile of branches
  • water dish for butterflies, other pollinators and birds
  • flowering shrubs and/or trees
  • decomposing leaves under shrubs

Which plants can be found in the yard and nearby areas? In the spring, use young leaves from, for example, dandelions, lady’s mantle, yarrow and sheep’s sorrel in salads, soups and stews.

  • mezereon
  • garden rockcress
  • common lilac
  • sticky catchfly
  • sweet honeysuckle
  • field scabious
  • oregano
  • garden phlox (white)
