Want to do your part in helping your local pollinators flourish? Pollinator Friendly Gardening makes it easy.
Are you interested in growing a naturally healthy garden? How about ensuring your local environment helps bees, butterflies, and birds survive and thrive? Are you looking for the ideal plants to keep your colony happy if you are a beekeeper?
Pollinators such as monarch butterflies and bees are under threat, and more and more gardeners want to do all they can to create a hospitable space for them. That's where Pollinator Friendly Gardening comes in. It identifies the most visible and beloved pollinators: bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, as well as some more unlikely candidates such as ants, wasps, and beetles. It then explains the intriguing synergy between plants and pollinators. This vital information makes it a unique sourcebook to share how anyone can make a yard a more friendly place for pollinators.
Plant selection, hardscape choices, habitat building (both natural and manufactured), and growing practices that give pollinators their best chance in the garden are covered in detail. Plant lists organized by category, helpful tips, and expert spotlights make it a fun and accessible book to read too.
