Pollinating insects are vital to a healthy and productive garden. Our Pollinator Garden Kit is perfect for gardeners who grow flowers, fruit and/or vegetables, many of which depend on pollinators. The kit includes 1/4 lb. of our exclusive Honey Bee Wildflower Seed Mix
and a handmade wooden Mason Bee House
The seed mix contains eight colorful, long-blooming wildflowers species that are irresistible to bees - six annual species for first-year color, plus two perennials for second and successive years' bloom. The 1/4 lb of seed is enough to plant 500 to 1000 sq. ft. and can be stored for use over several seasons. Although honey bees are well known for their benefit to food crops, the small, native, non-aggressive mason bee is also a very effective pollinator. The Mason Bee House provides a nesting place for them. It's handmade in Washington State from cedar that was reclaimed from old barns and other structures; you may see nail holes and other marks that hint at its former use. It's about 9" high with the smooth, 5/16" holes preferred by mason bees.
