Garden Flowers That Enchant Bees

Bees are fighting a losing battle these days, with environmental changes affecting their livelihood. These important contributors to the world’s food sources could leave a very big problem behind if they disappear completely. But there are ways we can help, right in our own backyards. If you have a thriving garden, be sure to include bee-friendly options like daisies, irises, roses and lavender to attract bees and give them a safe place to work.

Walter Knoll Florist encourages you to make your outdoor space beautifully inviting for bees and other pollinators.
