Join us in June to learn how you can help bees, butterflies, birds and other pollinators thrive in your own back yard.
Nearly all of the world’s seed plants need pollinators — animals that cause a plant to make fruits or seeds by moving pollen from one part of a plant to another part to fertilize it. Visits from bees, beetles, birds, butterflies and other pollinators result in larger, more flavorful fruits and higher crop yields. Pollinator populations are decreasing, mainly due to loss of habitat. Grow Smart® this summer by adding native, pollinator-friendly plants to your yard to aid in their survival.
