Bees Happy in Canada
Spring and summer
Bring beauty, fragrance and bees to your garden from early spring to summer with this his combination of plants. These plants are all rich in nectar and provide important support to bees. Nothing says summer like the lazy buzz of bees as they buzz from one nectar-rich bloom to the next. We want to keep our bees happy. Pollinator populations play a pertinent role in natural pollination, and are threatened. Not to put too fine a point on it, but no bees = no food.
