Plants for Pollinator Gardens

Pollinator gardens alleviate nectar producing plant voids in fragmented habitats, every pollinator garden is important to create a contiguous pollinator habitat corridor. We can all take part in Bee-ham's pollinator corridor and easily make a difference, just spread some butterfly habitat seeds or plant a few bee friendly plants in Bellingham, WA
