About Pollinator Wildflower and Native Grass Mixes
More than one third of the food we eat needs to be pollinated by bees. There are over 4,000 species of native bees in the United States. When planting a pollinator preserve try to avoid using herbicides and pesticides. Inter-planting native grasses with our pollinator mixes provides a more diverse habitat.
