    Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants, Updated and Expanded by Douglas W. Tallamy and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at “A fascinating study of the trees, shrubs, and vines that feed the insects, birds, and other animals in the suburban garden.” —The New York Times As development and habitat destruction accelerate, there are increasing pressures on wildlife populations. In Bringing Nature Home, Douglas W. Tallamy reveals the unbreakable link between native plant species and native 5/5(9).

    Unlike most flower-arrangement books, which rely on expensive and often nonseasonal flowers from florists, this book presents an alternative that is in line with the "back to nature" movement. This is the first volume to showcase how to be inspired by nature's seasonal bounty and bring that nature into the home through floral arrangements.   “It’s impossible to overstate just how stunning Bringing Nature Home is a + page glossy ode to the beauty of seasonal flowers, branches and vines. I liked this book so much I bought two copies- one for our office and one for my home. Whether you’re a flower or a design lover (or both), you’re going to want this book in your home.” ~Design Sponge.

    "The book evolved out of a set of principles. So the message is loud and clear: gardeners could slow the rate of extinction by planting natives in their yards. This simple revelation about the food web--and it is an intricate web, not a chain--is the driving force in Bringing Nature Home." Anne Raver - New York Times5/5(4).   Bringing Nature Home How You Can Sustain Wildlife With Native Plants (Book): Tallamy, Douglas W.
