Create a Honey Bee Spa
Spring is in the air and so are the honey bees. Did you know that honey bees are responsible for pollinating one-third of our natural foods and that they are disappearing? Join me in creating a colorful bouquet from which they can feed.
Bee-friendly flowers provide nectar that keeps honey bees alive and pollen that helps fruits and vegetables to grow. If space is limited, you can plant the apporpriate flowers in a pot on your window sill or small balcony. If you have the space, a honey bee garden in your back yard is even better.
Honey Bee Gardening Tips
Choose flowers for their nectar and pollen. Annuals such as Sunflowers, Daisies, Zinnias, Asters, Marigolds and Geraniums are good and easy to find. There are others but these are readily available in the spring. Include perennials in your mix as well.
Whether you use plants or seeds, make sure your flower selection blooms successively over the spring, summer and fall. This will provide food throughout all seasons.
Choose colors that are most attractive to honey bees; blue, orange, purple and yellow.
