Create a nectar and pollen “cafe” for passing pollinators! We’ll plant our pots with ornamental annuals and culinary herbs to provide a good source of nectar and pollen for bees, butterflies, and other little helpers. Whether you have a balcony, rooftop, patio, or front porch, you can still plant a fantastic pollinator-supporting garden! *While we will have some part-shade plants to choose from, most of the annuals and herbs will thrive best in a full sun exposure.
Biological control is the release of natural predators to manage plant-harming insects. Biologicals help greenhouses and gardeners avoid the need to use pesticide sprays and dusts! Many beneficial insects are already in your garden, patrolling for (and munching on) unwanted pests like aphids and borers.
