Basic Tips for Supporting Pollinators

Tip #1:

Plant Variety

Choose a variety of plants with overlapping bloom times.  Try to always have 3 or more nectar sources from early spring to late fall.

To support the greatest variety of pollinators, plant as many different flower sizes and shapes as possible.

Tip #2:

A Place to Drink

Pollinators, like all animals, need water to drink.  Place a shallow dish with some pebbles and water outside in a shady spot.

Tip #3:

Any Size Garden Helps

Flower patches that are large are the most attractive to pollinators, but even small container gardens can attract and support pollinators
