Do you want to help the bees? Plant a bee-friendly garden! This gives the bees something to live on as their populations decline. Our bees are in trouble and we need them.
Planting a bee-friendly garden is especially important as yards and flower beds are more chemical laden and manicured, wild flowering grasses, weeds, flowers are being destroyed (like dandelions) for the sake of ‘looks’ and our bees struggle to survive.
It’s easy to attract (and help feed) bees, with the different flowering plants you can plant. And the good news is that bees have great taste! The flowers that they like (and also butterflies and hummingbirds) are largely beautiful and will be a people-friendly garden as well!
Here’s a list of just some of plants you can plant to help the bees in your area. This is just a partial list to help you get started. The bees have a wide variety of (good) tastes, so you won’t get bored with your options.
All sorts of herbs that have gone to seed or are flowering
Blue Giant Hyssop
(and other berries)
Wild flowering weeds
