Look for the bee logo in our upcoming plant sale for those native plants that provide especially high benefits to our native pollinators. These plants supply the nectar, pollen and nesting habitat critical to pollinators’ health and well-being. Particularly important are the early and late blooming plants. These are beneficial in spring to bees emerging from their nests, and in fall to bumblebees building up reserves before going into dormancy. You’ll find bee-friendly shrubs, groundcovers, perennials and seed mixes in our inventory this year! See plant descriptions for blooming times.
“The best way to help our insect heroes is to plant native wildflowers and reduce the use of insecticides.”
