Celebrate National Pollinator Month with Whispering Hills Garden Center

June is National Pollinator Month, a perfect time to celebrate the essential role pollinators play in our ecosystem. At Whispering Hills Garden Center, we’re proud to support this vital cause by featuring the American Beauties Native Plant collection and offering expert advice to help you create a pollinator-friendly garden.

The Importance of Pollinators

Pollinators, including bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other insects, are crucial for the health of our environment. They are responsible for pollinating over 75% of flowering plants and nearly 75% of our crops. Without these hardworking creatures, our food supply and the biodiversity of our natural habitats would be in jeopardy.

Pollinators contribute to the production of fruits, vegetables, and nuts, playing a significant role in agriculture. They also help maintain healthy ecosystems by enabling plants to reproduce, which in turn supports wildlife by providing food and shelter. By promoting pollinator-friendly practices, we can help sustain these vital species and ensure the continued health of our environment.

American Beauties Native Plant Collection

At Whispering Hills Garden Center, we are proud to feature the American Beauties Native Plant collection. These plants are specifically chosen for their ability to attract and support pollinators. Native plants are adapted to our local climate and soil conditions, making them an excellent choice for your garden. They provide the nectar and pollen that pollinators need to thrive, and they offer essential habitats for these important creatures.

Expert Advice and Support

Creating a pollinator-friendly garden is easier than you might think, and Whispering Hills Garden Center is here to help. Our team of experts is ready to provide you with the advice and support you need to get started. Here are a few tips to help you create a garden that will attract and support pollinators:

  1. Choose a Variety of Plants: Include a mix of native flowers, shrubs, and trees that bloom at different times of the year. This ensures that pollinators have a consistent source of food throughout the seasons.
  2. Provide Water Sources: Pollinators need water to survive. A shallow dish of water with stones for perching can be an excellent addition to your garden.
  3. Avoid Pesticides: Many pesticides are harmful to pollinators. Instead, opt for organic and natural pest control methods.
  4. Create Shelter: Pollinators need places to nest and take refuge. Include elements like brush piles, bare soil, and bee hotels to provide shelter for different species.
  5. Educate and Engage: Teach your friends and family about the importance of pollinators and encourage them to create pollinator-friendly spaces as well.
