Hey y’all! We just wanted to take a minute and introduce our newest Grow Garden to the (potting) mix–the Honey Bee Habitat! We’ve been wanting to create a pollinator garden for our line, and since bees are one of the most important pollinators out there, we decided to make a garden just for them.
Did you know that about 80% of the pollination of fruits, vegetables, and seed crops in the U.S is accomplished by honey bees? Much of the food we eat is made possible by bees. And since our little honey bee friends have been disappearing over the years, we figured by growing this bee kit we can contribute a little something to the environment by keeping them around and healthy!
Even people who don't have a large garden space can still help by creating a mini honey bee habitat. Our specialized seed mixture (with up to 20 different seeds) provides nectar and pollen for the bees, all season long, early and late blooming, annuals and perennials.
Bees are such interesting creatures to us and we’ve even been keeping them in our own backyard. We really do think of them as pets (as we do our chickens)! It's fun to watch in the late afternoon as they are returning to the hive with their "pollen baskets" on their hind legs, stuffed with pollen. And it’s so cool to harvest honey from your very own hive, it's just really fun and tasty too!
