Plant More Flowers!

Plant more flowers for happy bees!

Which kinds?  Bees rely on a continuous supply of flowering plants for pollen and nectar.  Look at your garden and plan for continuous blooms -- this strategy makes your garden look great and benefits the bees!

Check out these sites for some plant ideas:

  • Wikipedia's Pollen Source - Tables by season, for trees & shrubs, and flowers, herbs, and grasses with bloom time (month ranges for USDA zone 5)
