It’s time to plant! This year add to your pots and landscaping some easily grown medicinal plants that are also wonderful sources of food for our native pollinators. Our population of pollinating insects is rapidly declining for a variety of reasons. Become part of the solution by including pollinator friendly plants in 2022. Your garden can be not only medicinal, but also bee-utiful!
