Plant for Pollinators

Plant for Pollinators
One of the best ways we can help the environment at home is to use native plants in our gardens and lawns. Native plants are better for pollinators — including bees, insects, butterflies and even hummingbirds — because they provide wildlife with the proper food and shelter they need to survive. Native plants also save you money. They don't require expensive watering systems, poisonous chemicals and expensive fertilizers. 

To guarantee success, make sure to research the germination, planting times and site conditions each native species requires, and you will be pleased with a forever garden within two years. An excellent resource for growing guides and selecting the best plants for your area is the Pollinator Partnership
