Pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds, are essential for the growth and reproduction of many plants in our gardens.
The population of these important insects & animals is rapidly declining due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and other factors. By using these tips we can invite pollinators to our garden.
Grow pollinator friendly plants such as zinnia, Rangoon creeper, Coneflower, Marigold, Dahlia, Daisy, Pansy, Mint, etc., in your garden.
Provide shelter by leaving some areas of your garden undisturbed, such as a patch of long grass or a pile of branches. You can also create nesting sites by installing bird boxes.
Pesticides & chemicals can be harmful to pollinators and other beneficial insects in your garden. Avoid using chemical pesticides and herbicides.
Pollinators need a source of water to stay hydrated, especially during hot and dry weather. Provide a shallow dish or container of water with stones.
Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage more blooms, & remove any weeds that may compete with your pollinator-friendly plants.
