The following article appeared in our local paper. http://www.buffalonews.com/life/home-style/article393442.ece When we purchased our house over six years ago, the entire nearly 2 acres were mowed. Slowly, we have been working to bring the land back to nature, we allow our field to grow, which encourages more wildlife to return to the area.
We are also pesticide free. Syracuse Cultural Workers have a great sign that speaks to the harm pesticides cause.
Please consider purchasing any new plants from a knowledgeable nursery who supports native plants. Truly, dandelions can be beautiful!
