Seasonal planting for honey bees is essential to their lives, especially during some key times during the year. Bees will need an abundance of food when coming out of the winter doldrums and in the fall as they are attempting to gather pollen and nectar for their winter reserves. This webinar will address planting for these particular times of year to best support your local bee populations. Ultimately, your goal is to improve the seasonal variety of beneficial plants, beginning with early spring, through summer, and ending in the fall.
After attending, you will be able to:
- Understand the bees’ needs;
- Evaluate and understand your particular landscape;
- Identify preferred indigenous plant species; and
- Know how to take advantage of public open spaces for seasonal plantings.
Who Should Attend?
All beekeepers and gardeners who are interested in learning how to support bee populations through seasonal plantings can benefit from attending this webinar.
