Beekeeper's Mix


Natives are a no-brainer for attracting pollinators, but did you know honeybees love them too?! The best plants for honey bees deliver a good supply of sugary nectar and protein-rich pollen. Natives are often capable of providing this and more! Support your bees from early spring through the end of fall, and add ecological value to your property at the same time. This mix is made up of native forbs that the beekeepers at Pinelands Nursery have seen the most honeybees buzzing around on. Here at Pinelands Nursery, we have over 15 hives across our 3 farms in Columbus, and the bees love the nectar from our native flower crops! 

10 lbs. per acre. $104 per lb. *Mix design and pricing are subject to change without notice depending on the availability of current and future products. Changes to the mix will not affect its function.*
