Help your local honey bees by planting bee-friendly plants. These plants can help the bees produce more honey, which you can then extract and jar. Certain plants can even affect the taste of the honey.

Honey bees are not the only ones that benefit from blooming plants. Bumble bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds and many other pollinators visit the garden. They will all benefit from your bee friendly garden design.
