Congratulations to Danielle Porter for winning this book! Happy gardening Danielle.
I was so pleased with a bee and pollinator book, that I thought I would pass on a copy to a lucky reader. That’s right, a book giveaway! What is the book, you ask? 100 Plants to Feed the Bees: Provide a Healthy Habitat to Help Pollinators Thrive The drawing will take place after 8 pm on February 14, 2017–Valentine’s Day–because we love bees!
Readers of this blog know that I ask people to plant the right flowers for the bees and pollinators. Enough bee flowers = great nutrition. And great nutrition will sustain and help the bees stay healthy. Makes sense, right?
I really like this book for a couple of reasons. Authored by the Xerces Society,100 Plants to Feed the Bees is an easy guide to help you know exactly which plants to plant for the bees and pollinators. (And despite the title, this book is a great resource for all pollinators.) There is an emphasis on our native and wild plants. The book provides great pictures and basic growing information for each plant. (Though you may need to do more research for a plant’s growing zone and ideal growing situation.)
I give the book high marks for its usefulness. For example, I love the graphic icons that tell you which pollinator likes each flower, including honey bees, native bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and moths. Easy.
