Native Gardeners partner with the N.I.C.E plant program at NPSOT

Are you looking for a way to bring some natural beauty and local flora into your yard? Do you want to help improve and conserve the environment? Then you're in luck! The Native Gardeners Nursery is partnering with NPSOT's N.I.C.E program (Natives Improve and Conserve our Environment) to get more native plants into people's yards.

Texas is a diverse state with different regions having their own unique climate and soil conditions. This means that plants that thrive in one area may not do so well in another. That's where N.I.C.E comes in! The N.I.C.E Native Plant Partners program is a collaboration between the Native Plant Society of Texas and local nurseries around the state to offer native plants that are specifically suited to each region.

The N.I.C.E program is run by local chapters of the Native Plant Society, and they work with local nurseries and wholesalers to create a list of "Plant of the Month" or "Plant of the Season" options. This ensures that these plants are available and easily accessible to the public. The local chapter also helps promote these plants through various means, such as signs at the point of sale, information sheets at the nurseries, and articles on their website and in their newspaper.

At the Native Gardeners Nursery, we're proud to be a participating N.I.C.E! nursery, and we're committed to educating the public about the benefits of native plants and how to care for them. Our knowledgeable staff can answer any questions you may have, and we have a wide selection of native plants that are perfect for your area.

Not only will adding native plants to your yard bring natural beauty and attract local wildlife, but it also helps conserve our environment. Native plants are adapted to the local climate and soil conditions, so they require less maintenance and watering. This saves resources and helps protect our environment.

So, if you want to bring some of Texas's natural beauty into your yard and help conserve the environment, come visit us at the Native Gardeners Nursery! We're happy to be a part of the N.I.C.E program and look forward to helping you find the perfect native plants for your yard. And remember, feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. Let's work together to improve and conserve our environment!
