Tower Hill Botanic Garden horticulture director Mark Richardson offers an online, informative, in-depth hour long talk on the importance of native plants in supporting ecosystems and how to choose the right ones for your particular piece of paradise.

Prior to joining the staff at Tower Hill, Mark wrote Native Plants for New England Gardens, a guide to over 100 native perennials, trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses and vines with co-author Dan Jaffe.
