Great advice! I have been building a pollinator garden over the past year. I included many perennial native plants (host plants and nectar plants). I never thought about how tall yellow flowers or vines would help attract more of them from the air. Great tip!
Winter storms left part of my yard torn from downed trees, would like to turn this area into pollinator garden, any suggestions for seed plant types is greatly appreciated, Philadelphia Pa area, more shade than sun.
We are starting a pollinator garden in Burlington N.C. We've got about 1/4 of an acre for it. Last year was the start. We planted Brown Eyed Susan in small clumps and a non-local Tithonia (Mexican Sunflower). They grow to about 6 feet and are covered with blossoms that last until the Fall. And on a hike I found some Monarda (Bee Balm) growing wild. I dug some up (it had spread far and wide along my path) and brought it home to put in the garden. This Spring we have a clump big enough to divide and transplant. In addition to the Pollinator Garden we have planted several apple, pear and peach trees that offer lots of blossoms for the bees.
