Want to support pollinator habitat? It’s as easy as planting a garden (and staying away from pesticides, of course). Grow these beautiful and fragrant plants to attract bees, hummingbirds, butterflies and other friendly pollinators to your garden. You can set aside a little patch of wild meadow for your buzzy buddies, or add them to your existing planting plan. Don’t want to bother with ornamentals? No problem —pollinators like vegetable gardens, too.
