Sage is unique because of its history as a medicinal herb. It has been used as an anti-inflammatory and an antiseptic in the past. In addition to these health benefits, it will add a bounty of flavor to your dishes and lots of style to your garden.

Hummingbirds are not only beautiful creatures to watch, but can be very helpful in the garden to rid of pesky insects. They can pollinate some flowers that can’t be reached by other birds since they have such a long beak.
Honeybees live in colonies with one queen, worker bees (females) collecting food for honey, and male drones. Honeybees are important pollinators for flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Honeybees are disappearing and are so important to try to keep around!
Whiteflies are tiny little white flies that suck the sap from plants. They are typically found on the undersides of leaves.
These mites are extremely small relatives of spiders. They are typically found on the undersides of leaves. An easy way to check for them is to place a sheet of white paper underneath the leaves and gently tap. If you see moving specks on the paper then you have a problem.
Aphids are tiny insects that can usually be found in groups on the undersides of leaves and stems. A few aphids can’t do much, but they reproduce quickly, are born pregnant, and can take over a plant in no time at all!
