All About The Bees

When it comes to gardens and outdoor flowers, it’s important to be purposeful in how you grow your plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables. One important element in any garden is the inclusion of bee-friendly plants. Giving bees a safe place to grow and work allows them to contribute in significant ways to a balanced eco-system as well as the world’s major food sources.
