Supporting The Bees
As Spring approaches, it’s even more important to keep our bees safe and stay aware of where they’ll be busy buzzing once the warmer weather begins. Honey bees are extremely beneficial to our environment, and are using plants we know and love to pollinate.
Some flowers that you can plant in order to give the bees somewhere comfortable to land include the Purple Coneflower, Black-Eyed Susans, Marsh Blazing Stars, etc. Planting a bee garden is a great way to support the bees even through the Summer months. It’s good to think ahead and plan for this as we transition into the Spring season in order to ensure you’ll be taking care of the garden correctly.
