Free Guides to Attracting Garden Pollinators
Something for nothing. A no-cost guidebook to planting for pollinators.
Want strong pollinated plants while feeding bees and other pollinators from spring planting to fall frost? The Pollinator Partnership, a San Francisco-based nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the health of pollinators through research, conservation and education, offers free downloadable guides (and a companion app), “Selecting Plants for Pollinators” that cover how to lure beneficial insects to your garden. Each of the 16 regional guides—funded by the the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the Plant Conservation Alliance and the C.S. Fund—offers tips, advice and lists of commonly available plants that attract pollinators. Get your free guide here.
