How To Start A Pollinator Garden This Spring
It’s growing season! AKA: Spring is here and we’re definitely ready for outdoor activities and the pretty colors that bloom around us.
It’s the perfect time of year for growing plants – that time when temperature, amount of daylight and rainfall are all at the perfect complement for growing beautiful flower plants. The length of the growing season varies from place to place. In tropical regions it can last most of the year. For the United States, the warmer Spring and Summer temperatures make it ideal to grow pollinator friendly plants.
Pollination is an important part of a plant’s life cycle. And us humans depend on this process too! One out of every three bites of food we take relies on pollination. This is why pollinator insects, like native bees, butterflies, and moths are our friends.
