Glorious Pollinators, a gardener's helper





Remember to plant for pollinators! 

It is important to plant flowering plants that attract pollinating insects, butterflies and even bats! These little garden helpers can increase your vegetable and fruit production by pollinating the flowers for increased production.

It is important to remember that all those vegetables and fruits are a result of the plant reproductive cycle. Pollination is an important part of this process. Remember to incorporate a wide variety of plants that bloom in succession to attract insects to your yard.

Make sure that you plant these plants among the edible plants to draw the pollinators through the landscape.
