Honeybee / Beekeeper's Mix

Natives are a no-brainer for attracting pollinators, but did you know honeybees love them too?! The best honey bee plants 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.  Another benefit of using natives is to turn your garden into a low maintenance garden so you have more time to focus on the health of your bees! 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!
