Pollinator gardens support declining bee, butterfly, and insect populations. They're crucial for pollination, which is vital for our food supply and ecosystem.
Native plants attract more pollinators. Plant in clusters to create a target for pollinators. Consider a mix of shrubs, trees, and flowers for continuous bloom.
Native bees, butterflies, and other insects are critical for pollination. Install a native bee hotel and learn about other beneficial insects in your garden.
Avoid harmful chemicals. Use less-toxic methods like diatomaceous earth, neem oil, and Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) to tackle pests.
Companion planting naturally repels pests and attracts pollinators. Mix flowers and vegetables together for a healthier garden.
Birds are pollinators too! Provide clean water, put up bird feeders, and plant flowers that attract hummingbirds to create a bird-friendly garden.
Use water thoughtfully. Select drought-tolerant plants for dry areas and moisture-tolerant plants for wet areas. Install a rain barrel to catch water.
