Food Plot Plants - Habitat Restoration Plants and Their Benefits 

About food plot plants: Many people enjoy gardens that help restore natural habitats. Even a tiny garden plot stocked with habit restoration plants can turn your yard into an oasis for native birds, reptiles, plants, and animals. Habit restoration helps you stay in harmony with nature and heal the earth.

 

 You can heal blighted, ruined landscape areas by creating a safe, restored habitat and being in tune with nature. It's a beautiful way to enjoy gardening that gives back more than it takes out. A restored habitat will draw butterflies, hummingbirds, chipmunks, squirrels, songbirds, and other friendly creatures to your garden.

 

Choosing the perfect food plot Plants

 

 What kinds of plants do you need for habitat restoration? It depends on the type of area you're trying to restore and the hardiness zone you live in.

 You will need a combination of the following:

 

  • Wetlands plants. Add these if you have a pond or stream in your yard.
  • Native grasses. Let these take over for the grass on your lawn.
  • Meadow grasses. Creating a small meadow area attracts birds and wildlife.
  • Wildflowers. These add beauty and color to your yard.
  • Brightly-colored native flowers. Use these to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.

What Else Does Your Food Plot Habitat Need?

 

Water source. You can create a pond, a fountain, a birdbath, or a rain garden.

Food sources for wildlife. Add fruit-bearing trees, berry bushes, and feeders.

Cover. Birds and wildlife need the cover of dense bushes, hedges, and trees.

 

Feeding and Fertilizing a food plot Habitat

 

 Avoid adding chemical fertilizer to your habitat. You can help it start with a small amount of organic fertilizer or compost.
