Bees are an excellent addition to any garden. Not only do they pollinate locally to encourage growth and diversity in your own yard, they are also vital in pollinating much of the world’s food sources. These industrious creatures maintain balance in a healthy eco-system but their numbers are declining rapidly. By encouraging bees to visit your garden or backyard, you are fostering their growth and helping to rebuild the bee community. Currans Flowers recommends bringing bee-friendly bouquets to your porch or outdoor patio, having fresh water available to prevent dehydration in bees, and maintaining shady areas throughout your yard to keep them cool as they work.
Bees love bright flowers in shades of yellow or deep blue. An arrangement like our Summer Fun bouquet is sure to please the bees in your backyard. Display this mix of sunflowers, iris, Gerbera daisies and roses in an ideal location outside to draw bees, or plant similar blooms in your own garden.
Bringing the bee numbers back to a healthy level is going to take some work but including these fascinating creatures in your healthy garden is the first step. Talk to the floral experts at Currans Flowers about ways to create the best atmosphere for bees in your yard or garden.
