Building capillary beds for Native Plants

Our great native plant expert John Koon got the students started on building the capillary beds that will be the cornerstone of our native plant restoration program. These plants will eventually be replanted in restoration projects around King County. The capillary beds consist of a bottom layer of soil, black fabric and plastic placed on top of that, and 3-4″ of sawdust on top. The propagated native plants are placed in the sawdust and left to grow for an extended period of time. This process feeds the plants the moisture and water that they need, with little or no maintenance. read this article from WSU to learn a little more about it. http://gardening.wsu.edu/text/nvsalvag.htm

    One of theses quality details to look for on a fake piece
    of Chloe hardware is the color. The re-release of the books is prompted by the
    upcoming Paddington movie. In fact, taking carotenoids prior to sun exposure will increase the depth and lasting effect of a sun tan (not
    that extended tanning is advised).
