100 Plants to Feed the Bees: Provide a Healthy Habitat to Help Pollinators Thrive

The international bee crisis is threatening the global food supply. 100 Plants to Feed the Bees is a photo-driven guide that shows home gardeners how to be part of creating a more bee-friendly world with nectar- and pollen-rich plants. The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation offers profiles of 100 common flowers, herbs, shrubs and trees that support bees, butterflies, moths and hummingbirds. The recommendations are simple: pick the right plants, protect the pollinators from pesticides and provide abundant blooms throughout the growing season by mixing perennials with herbs and annuals! 100 Plants to Feed the Bees empowers homeowners, landscapers, apartment dwellers -- anyone with a scrap of yard or a window box -- to protect our pollinators.
