As we now know, the proliferation of toxic pesticides, combined with erratic weather patterns, disappearing habitats, and infectious viruses had contributed to the decline of bee colonies all over North America. We can do our bit by doing what we can to encourage the health of bee colonies. Around 30% of the food we eat requires pollination and reduced bee numbers results in reduced yields in everything from apples, cherries, berries, amongst many other foods that we take for granted as abundant. These could disappear from grocery store shelves if bee numbers continue to decline. The following plants are among some of the plants that you can plant to help bring back our pollinating friends.
You don't even need a yard! Window boxes, containers, pots, all make excellent vessels for plants. Get on some gloves and get planting!
