Tip of the Week: Attracting Pollinators
Posted on June 13 2016
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans out there and welcome to our latest edition of “Tip of the Week,” where we provide all of you some tips and tricks to keep your indoor flowers and outdoor gardens looking spectacular all the year through! This week, we're going to show you an easy trick to keep your garden lush and healthy, all while using the force of nature. From the gardener to the 5th grader in science class, everyone knows that flowers need to be pollinated to stay healthy, look luscious, and produce seeds. For fruiting plants, such as fruit and vegetable plants, proper pollination is tantamount to a better quality of crops. Now, pollination is a natural thing, generally brought on by the instinctual behavior of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. However, you can exacerbate this process in your garden with only a few simple tricks that will make your garden look even more beautiful. By planting a few brightly colored summer plants, such as the yellow yarrow, pink coneflower, and sunflower, pollinators will start to flutter around like there's no tomorrow. Not only that, but if you plant these flowers right next to your fruits and vegetables, there's more of a chance that these pollinators will visit and pollinate them. Did we also mention that summer flowers will make your garden look absolutely beautiful? When gardening, nature is your best ally, so be sure to use it to your full extent. All it takes is a few more flowers, and your garden will be looking its absolute best.
