I don’t have a favorite bee flower, yet. I’m just beginning my gardening adventure. Discovering my retirement activities. I DO keep the clover in my yard (and there’s PLENTY of it!) and I planted a butterfly garden from a bulb package that has bloomed, for the first time, this spring. I look forward to learning!

Tamara Macmillan on
Bee balm is the best! Second is borage!

I love to plant a wildflower mix for my area (Southeastern US) for the bees around the perimeter of my garden. I think it draws more in for pollination.

Bees love the crooked neck squash and pole bean blooms. This year is our third try at having a garden and the first using Mary’s Heirloom seeds. We have gotten the most yield this year than we ever have using her seeds – even as it’s been one of the driest springs we’ve had in a while. Definitely will use Mary’s seeds again – they are definitely the best seeds we’ve ever used.
My local bees are loving the Pentas I planted this spring!
Bees love my lavander
And blossoms in my apricot trees
I just discovered sweet almond bushes last year and I’m obsessed! They are covered in honey bees the second there are blooms and the smell is divine!
Rebecca in MD on

Beth A Martin on
Borage for bees!!
Sandy Abalos on
My favorite bee friendly plant is…so hard to pick just one! Today the bees are enjoying my Vitex blooms!
My favorite is Milkweed. Although the most popular one (according to the bees) in my garden is Parsnip flowers, they go crazy for them.
I was planting some violas, early spring, and a bumblebee came to visit the one in my hand even before I could get it planted! haha
Julie L. on
Butterfly bushes! they love those
Bees balm is my favorite
James Wilburn on
Sunflowers are my favorite bee loving plants…
Gary Favero on
I would have to say wildflowers because I love wildflower honey , now to the garden it’s my first time having borage so we will see , around or near my box raised beds I plant marigolds every year and I have a hummingbird bird garden with tons of bee balm and Black-eyed Susan grow wild all along the drive I guess I have flowers surrounding the place but I see the most bees attracted to plane old clover 🍀
SANDY Delaune on
The bees love all my flowers.
Meghan K on
My favorite bee friendly plant this year has been Lacy Phacelia. It grew fast, smelled amazing, very pretty and the bees loved it! It also was great for keeping the weeds at a minimum where it grew.
Right now my honey bees are all over the lavender and a yellow weed I let grow just for them. Pretty soon they will be on the star thistle (another weed) and the sunflowers. Thank you for the giveaway.
Jeff Zurawicz, PGA on
The seeds I bought from Mary’s last year are crushing!

Lemon balm is one of my favorite bee plants, plus it’s easy to grow!
Would love to see a Mary’s Heirloom Seeds channel on Telegram. Sites like Facebook and Instagram famously violate people’s privacy. I do not support them and will not visit your pages on them.

Bees like the liatris (gayflower) in my garden. I don’t deadhead because goldfinches like the seeds!

I like the borage and sunflower for the bees and of course my tomatoes
My favorite bee friendly flower is probably sunflowers. One plant can fit hundreds of bees!
Frank Cannamela on
We plant many flowers around the farm for not only bees but for butterflies as well. The ones that I love the most are in the vegetable garden walking through in the morning hearing all the bees hard at work helping us produce our food.
Tiffany Richards on
I like sunflowers & zinnia for the bees!

I love the smell of milk weed and so do the bees :)
