TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson couple had a grand opening celebration for Spadefoot Nursery by selling plants grown in their own backyard.

The owners of Spadefoot Nursery says this was done to hopefully attract some local critters.

Jared McKinley Co-owner of Spadefoot Nursery says "Less than Native is more about supporting wildlife. So, and we grow, we sell what we grow at our own home. You know most of our landscape is geared towards supporting wildlife so we grow a lot of plants that are butterfly larvae food plants or nectar plants for the adult butterflies or bees and hummingbirds and all that."

McKinley says planting native plants in your own backyard is a great way for people to have a small, but still meaningful impact on the environment.

Spadefoot had a few soft openings last month, but starting now they will be open five days a week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. They are located on Broadway Boulevard near Country Club Drive.
