Planting for Pollinators Checklist
Create a thriving pollinator-friendly garden by first researching local pollinator species and selecting native plants that appeal to them. Design a diverse garden layout with plants that have different bloom times to ensure a continuous food source. Prepare the soil and plant flowers in clusters, incorporating host plants for caterpillars. Enhance the garden by adding water sources and avoiding harmful chemicals. Provide nesting sites for bees and butterflies, and maintain the garden regularly. Keep an eye on pollinator activity and make adjustments as needed to support their well-being.
