I started a garden for pollinators and bees last year, and I was wondering if anyone else had done one. If so, what plants did you use? I'm interested to see what these gardens look like in different regions.
I live in Iowa, zone 4-5, and here's a list of what I planted last year:
Hyssop (lavender colored)
Echinacea (White Swan)
Allium (Mars & Multibulbosum)
All of these plants did REALLY well in the scorching summer. The mint did a little too well; it's sending runners into the lawn but I don't actually mind. If your spearmint goes wild, just mow it along with the grass- your yard will smell incredible ;)
This year I plan to add some yarrow and bergamot/ beebalm.
What are your garden plans for 2020? :)
