  • It’s important for a pollinator garden to have a variety of plants that bloom from spring through fall. When picking out plants, don’t just choose ones that bloom in the summer.
  • If you use lawn chemicals, it’s important that those chemicals stay away from your pollinator gardens. You should not even use organic sprays in your pollinator garden.

We hope you enjoy creating your very own pollinator garden and we thank Jerry Schelhorn for sharing this wonderful information with us!
