Loblaw Garden Centres to carry native plants in partnership with WWF-Canada and Carolinian Canada
Taking action to help restore biodiversity has never been easier thanks to a partnership between In the Zone (a program run by WWF-Canada and Carolinian Canada) and Loblaw Companies Ltd. Native plants — those that are adapted to local conditions and have deep relationships with other plants and wildlife native to the area — can now be found in Loblaw Garden Centres primarily throughout southern Ontario but spanning all the way from Windsor to Ottawa.
This year, 123 Loblaw Garden Centres will carry native plants, which can be easily identified through the In the Zone plant tag.
The benefits of using native plants in your garden or balcony garden include:
Native plant gardening is a great way to beautify your space while doing something good for the planet. Anyone who adds native plants to their garden is also invited to help grow Canada’s biggest wildlife garden by signing up for the In the Zone Garden program where they’ll get access to garden guides, gardening tips, and contribute to community science through the Garden Tracker.
Many animal species in southern Ontario benefit from native plant gardening, including:
Loblaw Garden Centres will continue to follow COVID-19 public-health guidelines. Please consult your local public-health unit for further information on how to stay safe from COVID-19 while shopping.
