Herbs that Attract Pollinators

These herb plants help attract beneficial pollinators to your garden. Your garden should include herb plants, like lavender, mint and rosemary, which produce irresistible flowers to butterflies, bees and other pollinators.

‘Bee’ an Intentional Gardener ~ attracting pollinators to your garden. It's elementary, pollinators are essential to our survival. That sounds pretty dramatic, although when you recall earth science class, you may remember that almost all of the world’s flowering plants rely on pollinators! According to the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, "pollinators provide service to over 180,000 plants and more than 1,200 crops." 1 out of ever 3 bites of food you eat is available because of pollinators. Without pollinators, our food supply would be in peril. Luckily it's easy to grow plants in your garden to help them along.
