We continue our Plants for Pollinators Series with Honeylove.org. Our latest video gives you helpful suggestions for trees and shrubs you can plant for the pollinators in your life. They need pollen and nectar throughout the year, and some of these trees and shrubs bloom during the dearth, when other flowers are done for the season.
This list is just the beginning. Depending on your hardiness zone, native trees and shrubs are your best bet. Consult your local native plant society for even more options for your pollinator garden.
