A pollinator garden comes in many sizes. They can be window boxes, planters on a patio or family gardens – every little helps.
Pollinator Gardens Should:
- have plants that provide nectar and pollen sources
- provide a water source
- have sunny areas with protection from the wind
- have blooms throughout all seasons
- Ensure that any pesticides are being used safely, as per the label.
When planting a garden that's specifically designed to attract pollinating wildlife, you can help protect these animals. You can plant gardens to attract birds, or bees, or butterflies, or all three.
Remember, gardening decreases carbon dioxide and increases oxygen.
