Plant things of course! Visit a local nursery, like Portland Nursery, for a variety of local plants and start digging. October through May is a great time to transplant in the Portland Area because of our rainy season. The ground is soft, and you don’t have to worry about the constant watering of plants in the summer while they get established.
The more things growing in your backyard, the more birds and bees you will attract because you are giving them a basic element: food. We need birds and bees to pollinate trees and flowers, so start planting today!
