Don’t Forget the BEES!

Are you exploring home gardening during this COVID-19 situation? Don’t forget to plant for pollinators! This little list has helped make sure bees come to my yard first every year.

These plants are an excellent starting point, but make sure to drop in some native flowering plants as well. While any gardener will be happy to see pollinators of any sort, you can actually help out these little critters that are trying to help you!

Plant milkweed and parsley for monarch and swallowtail butterflies; anise hyssop for the wee honeybees; coneflowers will bring ALLL the pollinators to your yard; and goldenrod finishes the year out to prepare bees for overwintering.
