  1. I have long been in favor of certain invasive plant species and have always had a Darwinian garden. Most invasive species of plants just means hardy plants that do well and take over certain environments. They don’t invade in every environment. People use so much water, fertilizer, herbicide, trying to make plants not suited to a certain environment grow, and to kill off successful plants. We have many acres at The Holler and are surrounded by thousands of natural empty acres. We have a mix of native and introduced plants and lots of invasive plants because they are the only ones that can survive this harsh environment. The natives do the best, but the invasives thrive too. The vanity plants like roses etc require my TLC, but The Holler is primarily Darwinian. Because of this we use little water, hardly any fertilized (just the roses) and no herbicides. In other words it is a natural garden.
    Thanks for the interesting post~
