Fertilizing the natives
Hello all: I've made some cuttings/transplants of native plants from my woods. The plan is to grow these plants closer to my house so I can enjoy them. I have Clethra, False Solomon's Seal, Maple Leaf Viburnum and native Mountain Laurels. My questions is: even though natives are tough as nails, do I need to fertilize or otherwise care for these little plants? I've got them protected by chicken wire to keep the dogs off, but what else should I do?
