Beehives in your Garden
Bee's love to have a something to eat!  The more flowers that are around, the more the bees will produce in honey, and the more your flowers will bloom and fruit will set throughout the season.

Native plants should be your first choice to help your bees.  Talk to your landscape retailer and use a wildflower guide to find availability of bee-friendly plantings.
