According to The Xerces Society, "Nearly 75% of all plants on earth require animals for pollination." That's a big responsibility for those creatures we have around us and possibly take for granted.
Plant spring-blooming flowers in your landscape, especially if there are no fruit trees or early shrubs. Some good suggestions are:
- California poppies
- Sweet alyssum
- Bachelors' buttons
- Lenten rose
Plant containers with pansies, primroses, hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils and place them strategically in sheltered spots in your garden.
