TESTIMONIALS (Local folks)
"The native/pollinator flower seeds I got from Darcy at Stillwater Natives Nursery were scattered on a bare spot that had been covered by a firewood pile for several years. Without any care they germinated and produced some lovely blooms that attracted those wonderful little pollinators we are trying to encourage." - Donna LC
"My neighbors told me, “Don’t bother to grow anything on the coast. The deer eat everything and what they don’t eat, the wind will destroy. But with Darcy’s guidance and the use of native plants, my yard is lush and beautiful. I get compliments and watch seasonal color throughout my yard. But the big payoff is the habitat created for bees, birds and butterflies. Yes, the deer nibble and some plants suffer from the wind, but overall, I enjoy my garden and watch it come alive. - Christine H
