The plants in this collection are pollinator magnets. Pollinators are a vital part of life on earth as they pollinate most flowering plants. They do this by transferring pollen from bloom to bloom. Pollinators have been in decline due to habitat loss and disease. This collection was created to provide shelter and food for native pollinators to thrive. It is surprisingly easy and lots of fun to attract them to your garden for spectacular entertainment. Please help sustain the pollinator populations.

Soil preparation: The ideal soil is porous and drains well and yet still holds enough water for the roots. If your soil is heavy clay and drains slowly, or very sandy and does not hold water, add organic soil amendments (peat moss or ground bark). Spread a 3-4" layer of soil amendment, add fertilizer and incorporate together into the soil to a depth of 10". To plant: Dig a hole 0.5-2" deep in a partially sunny (at least 4 hours of direct sun), well drained location. Place the roots in hole pointed down and space 12-24" apart. Cover with soil and water. Mulch in extreme climates. Taller plants may need to be staked.
Newly planted roots need extra moisture during their first year in the garden to ensure that they form a solid root system.
