Beneficial plants for bees
When you plant your garden it is good to know which plants are beneficial to bees. We recommend to plant a variety of plants that bloom throughout different seasons. Add clusters of the same plants in one area. This increases the reward for the bees and reduces the amount of energy needed to fill their honey tummies! It is also good to know that plants that bloom for a longer period of time will have an increased chance of attracting bees. Examples of these plants are: Clover, Calendula, Coriander, Flax, Onion, Lavender and Radish. In addition to these plants, bees also love:
Bee Balm, Scarlet
Bee Balm, Spotted
Dead Nettle, Henbit
Dead Nettle, Red
Poached Egg Flower
This list of beneficial plants is originating from the book: Victory Gardens for Bees, by Lori Weidenhammer. A great DIY guide to saving the bees.
