STEP 1: CHOOSE YOUR PLANTS
Determine where you want to incorporate native plants. Site conditions will guide the plants you choose. The Marion County SWCD has developed a native plant list to target beneficial insects and pollinators and includes plants that are suitable to be in close proximity to vegetable 花园s.
With most native plantings, and especially if you are planting a large area, it is ideal to select 70%–80% forbs (wildflowers) and 20%–30% graminoids (grass and sedges). Choose a diversity of plants with different bloom periods to provide continuous flowering throughout the year.
Recommended Species List:
地位: Short: <24″ Medium: 24 – 48″ Large: > 48”
O 'C的间距 On-center spacing indicates the spacing between plants. When two plants with different spacing are adjacent, use the larger of the two between them.
场地带(FS)适合在靠近农作物的地方种植的植物, such as beds or strips within the growing area. These plants are non-flopping, cast little shade, and can tolerate full sun and hot conditions.
场边界(神奇动物) Plants suited for perimeter and pocket plantings.
步骤2: FINALIZE YOUR PLANT LIST
Cross-reference the SWCD plant list with additional lists to better determine plant suitability on your farm, 花园, 或景观, such as moisture and sunlight requirements. A couple of guide documents we especially recommend:
