Spring planting (should we?) with the Native Plant Society

Spring has absolutely sprung in most of the region. But there's a pretty good chance the stuff bursting into bloom is not native to the area. And that's why there's a Native Plant Society.

The Siskiyou Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon knows the indigenous plants of the region, and helps people find them, plant them, and enjoy them. Rachel Werling pays a springtime visit to the JX to talk about the chapter's work, and how people embracing native plants can take advantage.

WHEN to plant? Rachel says in the fall, actually... because there's so much hot and so little water in the summer.
