Weekend Gardener: Free Wildflower Seeds

Weekend Gardener

March 27th, 2015 – Williamson County Weekend Gardener

The collapse of honey bee colonies all over the US has raised many alarms, and while researchers try to determine exactly what’s happening to the bees and search for fixes, a massive effort to create new colonies and support those already around us is underway.

And you can help by feeding bees in your yard.  How?  You can plant bee-friendly plants.  And you can do it FREE.

Bayer has sponsored a program called the “Feed A Bee” Initiative.  You can read all about it at FeedABee.com.  You can get 2 free packets of wildflower seeds appropriate to Williamson County sent to you, and when you plant them you’ll be creating diverse sources of pollen and nectar for bees.

The site also recommends the Pollinator Partnership’s Bee Smart app for those who really want to create bee-friendly environments at home or at work:  Visit www.pollinator.org/guides.htm
