Spring is here! It's time to start planning your garden. You can easily turn your garden into a sanctuary for honeybees by planting a diverse range of bee friendly blooms. Honeybees are tempted by brilliant colors and pleasing scents of nectar. Pick plants with successive blooms, plant in groups and choose a variety of flowers that bloom spring, summer and into the fall. Bees need sources of nectar and pollen throughout the entire season. Honeybees also need a water source by their hive, so set up a bird bath alongside your garden. Leave clovers and dandelions in your yard because they're not only a another honeybee favorite but also important for our native pollinators. Whether you plant a sprawling garden or just a few potted plants, consider adding a few of these bee friendly plants to your line up to do your part in saving the bees-
