Pollinator Friendly Plants

Pollinators have a huge impact on the environment and on us. It’s currently estimated that pollinators are directly responsible for more than one third of the food we eat. In recent years, their numbers have been declining, due mainly to the over use of pesticides and the development of meadows and woodlands into spaces for human use. Creating a pollinator garden or adding pollinator friendly plants to your landscape is a huge step in helping our pollinators and our food supply.

Below is a list of some of the more popular pollinator friendly plants we carry, however all varieties listed may not be available at all times.
