What is the best way to attract pollinators?
Be intentional by planting a pollinator-friendly garden!
Bees, birds, and butterflies are attracted to a variety of different shapes, colors, and scents.
Here are a few tips for you to get started:
- Introduce a variety of plants in your yard that are both native and non-native to your area.
- Add a variety of flower shapes, aromas, and sizes to your yard, such as large disc-shaped flowers and "trumpet-shaped" flowers.
- Plant flowers that will bloom in your yard from the start of spring to mid to late fall so pollinators will continue to be in your yard throughout most of the year.
All of these tips will help you attract a greater number of pollinators of varying shapes and sizes!
