National Pollinator Week!
Let’s take time during National Pollinator Week (or any week) to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what we can do to help and protect them.
Pollinators are important to us and we can do a lot to help and support them. Bees, butterflies, birds and insects are critical to an ecosystem. Pollination is a vital stage in the life cycle of our plants and necessary for healthy and productive ecosystems. We can help pollinators by planting gardens with pollinator friendly plants and thus creating desirable habitats for our friends. Plant for continuous bloom throughout the growing season from spring to fall. Select a site that has at least partial sun, and can provide water. Allow material from dead branches and logs remain as nesting sites or consider installing wood nesting blocks for wood-nesting natives.
Check out pollinator.org for more info and stop by our shops in Plymouth and Carver for perennial plants you can add to your landscape. Choose from a great selection of perennials that include Echinacea, Lupine, Coreopsis and Foxglove.
Planting pollinator friendlies adds not only beautiful plants but attracts pretty birds and butterflies of interest and bringing you joy. Selecting plants for pollinators – This is a great guide with information for our area.
