PLANT FOR POLLINATORS Posted on 31 Dec 17:20 , 0 comments

In case you missed it, we just posted
 GROW A GREAT GARDEN on our blog.

Part of growing a great garden is attracting pollinators to your garden to not only grow a healthier garden but also a more productive garden.

 

POLLINATORS aren't just bees

Birds, bats, butterflies, moths, flies, beetles, wasps, small mammals, and most importantly, bees are pollinators. They visit flowers to drink nectar or feed off of pollen and transport pollen grains as they move from spot to spot.

During the entire month of January 2021, we will post a daily "pollinator fact" here on our blog as well as our social media pages

 

Part of this awesome educational series is the FREE SEEDS!  From January1 thru February 28, 2021 we are including a FREE pack of "free-bee-seeds" with every single purchase.

ABOUT Borage

"The flavor of Borage is similar to a cucumber.  Borage has bright blue, star-shaped flowers that explode in a blue profusion all summer attracting honey bees.  The flowers and young leaves may be used to garnish salads, dips and cucumber soups."

 

 

 

Increased yields and higher quality crops are benefits that growers and consumers realize from a healthy pollinator population, native or managed.

Somewhere between 75% and 95% [1] of all flowering plants on the earth need help with pollination – they need pollinators. Pollinators provide pollination services to over 180,000 different plant species and more than 1200 crops.

Let's plant more to pollinators!
