We are all so ready to get outside and in our gardens, I know I am! Today I am sharing plant suggestions for helping our bees. I know many of you want plants that attract bees and even butterflies.
It has become very popular for home gardeners to put up small beehives. If any of you reading this are in that group it it important you plant some of these plants for you honey bees.
We at Thomas Jefferson do have a small beehive in our gardens for them to feed on and make honey. They are not a problem and you hardly know they are even around.
So check out the chart I have posted to find bee friendly plants. This is just a small amount of plants that are out there but it will give you some ideas.
Happy Plant Shopping!
