Spring is coming, and now is the time to plant (or start seeds for) flowers for pollinator-friendly gardens. This is the first video in our “Plants for Pollinators” series, a collaboration with Honeylove.org. In the coming weeks, you’ll learn which wildflowers, trees, vegetables, bulbs, and herbs are best for bees and other pollinators. Stay tuned for a new video each week and plant something to help our pollinator population.
