Bees need healthy, pesticide and herbicide free flowers. If you have a garden, bees are essential to pollinate the flowers that give rise to your crops. Your crops won't be in bloom all summer, but bees need to eat all summer. Here are a few tips to ensuring bees have a variety of flowers to get all the nutrients they need so they can stay strong and healthy, and be ready to pollinate your garden and gardens for miles around.
Remember - not all flowers are the same. What is native and/or nutritious to bees in some regions can be a noxious weed or unattractive to the bees that live in others. Be sure that the plants you are planting are appropriate to your region.
