Native plants are wonderful to grow for many reasons. They are generally hardy, low-maintenance, support local pollinators and are adapted to their local conditions. There are some important differences between native and domesticated plants that home gardeners should be aware of. Firstly, unlike domesticated plant species, these wild plants aren’t adapted to humans looking after their seeds each year and therefore spread their germination out over a number of years. This is an adaptation that makes total sense, as they don’t know if in any particular year there will be a flood, fire, drought, herd of wildebeest (joking!) or other challenges to the growth of their offspring. Secondly, these native seeds can be ripe starting as early as June on the BC coast (miner’s lettuce, shooting star, sea thrift, salmonberry and other early bloomers). This presents a problem, as if these seeds germinated right away the annuals wouldn’t have time to mature and set seed again before winter sets in, and younger plants of perennials may be too
