A great thing to consider when planning your garden is making sure there are plants that contribute to our ecosystem and provide the fuel that our pollinators need! Fun fact- pollinating insects are responsible for every 3rd bite of food we eat, and 75% of all plants require animals for pollination. Insects making up the largest numbers. They are as important to a plant's health and well-being as the right amount of light, water and nutrients. Just like humans, pollinators need food, shelter and water to survive! Shrubs & grasses are perfect for providing much needed shelter against predators. Use shallow bowls and bird baths to provide a water source for the area as well. At the bottom of this post, take a peek at our stock of pollinator friendly perennials where they can get their nutrients!
