100 Plants to Feed the Bees
Provide A Healthy Habitat to Help Pollinators ThriveeBook - 2016
The international bee crisis is threatening our global food supply, but this user-friendly field guide shows what you can do to help protect our pollinators. The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation offers browsable profiles of 100 common flowers, herbs, shrubs, and trees that attract bees, butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds. The recommendations are simple: sow seeds for some plants - such as basil, rhododendron, and blueberries - and simply don't mow down abundant native species, including aster, goldenrod, and milkweed. 100 Plants to Feed the Bees will empower homeowners, landscapers, apartment dwellers - anyone with a scrap of yard or a window box - to protect our pollinators.
