Pollinators have a huge impact on us and the world around us! It’s estimated that pollinators like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are directly responsible for more than a third of the food we eat. Pollinator populations have been on the decline in recent years due in part to the over application of pesticides and the conversion of their habitats into spaces for human use. We can help this month (and every month) by using fewer pest controls and by adding their favorite perennials to our gardens! Below is a list of our favorite pollinator plants for spring, summer and fall.
