Bees need a diversity of pollen and nectar sources that bloom from early spring to late fall. They prefer flowers that are white, yellow, and purplish-blue to red flowers. When planting your bee garden it is important to plant in clusters or groups so bees recognize your garden as a continual nectar and pollen sources.
- FRUIT TREES Deciduous fruit trees are an important pollen source in early spring. As the bees move from plant to plant they pollinate fruit trees, helping to ensure fruit set.
- BERRY TREES Berries are both a nectar and pollen source for bees. Raspberries and blackberries are particularly important because they provide a surplus of nectar.
