Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants

Doug Tallamy

Why we like it: Tallamy’s seminal book covers everything you need to know about the “why” and “how” of going native in your garden. Bursting with color photographs of “bird food” (i.e., insects) and helpful how-tos, this book will make proponents of seed feeders rethink their means of provisioning birds. This book is full of real science (including specific regional guides to native plants and a table of butterfly/moth host plants), making even the most casual gardener feel like an ecologist.
