If bees die we die - help them in your garden by planting open single head flowers. Plant the same plants in clusters rather than peppered around the garden; plant for a succession of flowers throughout the year.

If you have space for a wild patch bees also love dandelion and nettles.

Remember for Spring ~ Add 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt to a gallon of water and spray your lawn for a lusher, greener lawn. Epsom salt is loaded with magnesium!
