Description

The #1 choice for gardeners and small growers wanting to provide pollinator habitat while improving soil health! 

A complimentary mix of annuals that attract bees and support beneficial insect populations. The diversity of species allows for a continuous supply of blooming flowers that provide food and habitat for pollinators over most of the growing season. 

Pollinator Mix is also an amazing green manure that will add large amounts of nitrogen, loosen compacted soils, improve soil structure and add organic matter when tilled. Establishes quickly, providing soil cover and protection, which helps prevent erosion.

Will grow for one season and can be mowed or tilled as a green manure in late fall or spring.
