I had the chance to visit the Backyard Farmer Garden this month. The garden is located in the center of University of Nebraska-Lincoln, East Campus.
It is a great place to explore, see All America Selection (AAS) winners and view great gardening techniques. This teaching garden is also a pollinator habitat. Here are a few plants I found:
Dill, Anethum graveolens– great plant for swallowtail caterpillars.
Compass plant, Silphium laciniatum– native plant with yellow flowers, for bees and butterflies.
Joe-pye weed, Eutrochium purpureum– Tall, late summer blooming perennial, for bees.
Gay feather, Liatris spicata– Purple prairie plant for bumble bees.
Hope you can take time to visit this wonderful garden.
