Nick Tew and Shrubby Cinqfoil

We are very excited this episode to introduce our listeners to PhD student Nick Tew who discusses some of the most up-to-date science around what plants are best for pollinators. In the same vein, we look at a wonderful shrub for both pollinators and caterpillars, the stunning Shrubby Cinqfoil or Potentilla fruticosa.
