Happy National Bee Day!  Wondering how you can do your part to help our favorite pollinators? Read on to learn how to plant a bee-friendly garden.

Let Go of the Green

Trade some of that lush, green grass for flowering plants.  Bees are in need of more inventory on which to feed.

Three to a Season

To provide a consistent feeding source, you should plan at least three different types of flowers in your garden that bloom at different times of the season.
