February – November
The Pollinator mix is designed to be a season long workhorse for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. Farmers and gardeners have long known the importance of sustaining adequate pollinators to set plant fruit. Research shows that populations of important pollinators are declining.
This mix contains a combination of annual and perennial plants that bloom at different times to provide pollen and nectar throughout the growing season. They are easy to grow, establish quickly and provide pollinator services the first growing season.
Fall, later winter or early spring are optimum seeding times. However, we have successfully seeded this mix in June or July and plants established very well. The annuals give quick color and pollinator services into the fall and the perennials overwintered as rosettes and bloomed the following spring and summer.
