Tips to a Good Pollinator Garden

It is estimated that three-quarters of major food crops need or benefit from pollinators.

  • Use plants that provide food, nectar and pollen sources
  • Create large masses of native and non-invasive plants
  • Establish continuous bloom throughout growing season
  • Provide a water source
  • Be situated in sunny areas with wind breaks
  • Eliminate or minimize the impact of pesticides and herbicides
  • Support the full life cycle - contain both food sources for immature pollinators and nectar sources for adult pollinators
