Plant Pollinator Friendly Plants


Extensive use of pesticides has posed a threat to natural pollinators, causing colony collapse disorder in bee populations. By growing pollinator-friendly plants in your garden pollinator populations can increase the pollination of fruits and seeds. 

Pollinators need two essential components in their habitat: flowers from which to gather nectar and pollen and places to nest. Conservation practices such as field borders, cover crops, conservation cover, filter strips, critical area planting, tree/shrub planting and more can provide food (pollen and nectar) and nesting sites for local native pollinators and honey bees. Native plants are the best choices for conservation plantings because plants and their pollinators have evolved together over thousands of years.
