Think About Our Pollinators This Year!
Pollinator gardens can be a great way to get young and old alike outside. There are a variety of pollinators that frequent our area. The easiest plants to incorporate into a pollinator garden are native plants. Once established, native plants require very minimal care. Wildflowers are also a great addition with the benefit of reseeding the following year. What ever your pollinating plans are, we can help!
