    Hi,
    I'd like to gradually replace the plants in my garden with native plants. It's a small "townhouse" garden with one long narrow (maybe 20cm wide) strip by a fence which faces East and a small patch around a little pond which faces North/West.
    I know very little about plants but have heard that once the native plants have taken root you don't need to do much care for them. Maybe none? That would be great! :)
    Anyway, can you point me to a site that has pictures and names so I can make some choices?
    Thanks a lot!
    Julie

    Hi,

    A bookstore is a good place to start, but online there are some good resources.

    One is Pacific Rim Native Plant Nursery at

    www.hillkeep.ca.

    There are others out there but that is the only one I have bookmarked.

    Good luck
