Description

NEW Pollinator Essentials Mix a good start
for Native Bees, Butterflies, Beneficial Insect Pollinators & Honey Bees!


Like all our seed... 100% Native

Add Bee Happy Mix for greater diversity!


Sometimes we tend to forget about the smaller things in life that really do make the world go ‘round. Just as wildlife has suffered from increased fragmentation of land through urbanization, so have bees, beetles, & butterflies. Not long ago, beekeepers would ask farmers to set beehives near croplands in exchange for some honey. Now farmers are paying beekeepers to bring in hives for their crops. Hives are trucked all over the nation. A third of U.S. food supply depends on pollinators.

Why the decline in pollinators? Could it be the increased use of pesticides... or light pollution to the night sky? 

 Whatever the reasons, many organizations are offering helpful information and incentives for people to plant pollinator habitats. Pollinators like plants that produce pollen, nectar, habitat, shelter and safety from predators. Pollinators need nectar throughout most of the year, not just in spring. Planting diverse native wildflowers will benefit honey bees & native bees.
