Did you know that many pollinators spend their hibernation in the twigs and fallen leaves? Temperatures that stay above 10 degrees for a week, are seen as safe to tidy your yard and gardens.

There are resources online to native plants for your area. At Ontario invasive plants has a downloadable guide for Southern Ontario.
