Host a Pollinator Party

When you invite pollinators into your garden, you get more flavorful fruits and higher yields, plus a lovely flutter of activity to watch. That’s what’s in it for you—but you’re also providing essential pollen and nectar sources for bees, birds, butterflies and more. With natural habitats shrinking, planting for our winged friends is more important now than ever.

What is a Pollinator?

Pollinators are animals and insects that transfer pollen from the stamen to the stigma of a flower, allowing the plant to produce fruit. Bees, butterflies and birds are all-star pollinators, and so are flies, bats and beetles. As more natural habitats are lost, it’s crucial to create gardens with pollinators in mind, offering food and shelter for these beneficial creatures throughout the year.
