Planting for Beneficial Insects: How to Make a Habitat Garden – Tora Rocha
Learn how to build a pollinator friendly habitat garden with native and locally-sourced plants. A large number of flowering plants rely on an animal for pollination, successful seed set, and fruit growth. Even self-fertile plants like tomatoes or plants that are typically wind-pollinated, like grapes can benefit from animal “vectors”—animals that help to transport pollen. Hear about the 1800+ California native bees that pollinate 75% of the food we eat. Understand the life cycle of the pollinators in relation to your eco-friendly landscaping practices. Even the smallest yards have room for a bee hotel!
