Every year I say the same thing, plant for the bees. Well here I am again, time to plant for those bees! It’s not too late, you can still plant a ton of things. Head to the local nursery or even your store, they most likely have plants sitting out in the sun soaking up glorious sunshine. If you plan on planting any vegetables during the summer you want to bring the bees in. Establish the pollinators now so that you can keep them coming in throughout the summer.
4 great flowers to start from seeds that don’t required any at all fuss to grow –
- Zinna’s which can come in an array of colors
- Cosmos, also colorful
- Poppies, while there are different varieties of these California Poppies ( orange) are the easiest and quickest to grow. I find the other colors, take white, pink or red don’t always come up as fast and or they are much smaller . You can’t go wrong with the orange ones, they are bright and cheerful.
- Marigolds, these you can buy different varieties of as well and can even buy plants if you don’t want to start with seeds.
