Native Seed Booklet - Bees and Pollinators
Bees and other pollinators are absolutely essential to biodiversity and our food security. It is estimated that nearly 35% of the world's food production depends on their work. However, with the loss of their natural habitats, climate change and the use of pesticides, many pollinator species are now in trouble.
Milkweed, fistula monard, fennel agastache and heliopsis are native to North America. They were present here long before the arrival of European explorers and have evolved with our local wildlife. In addition to producing beautiful flowers that beautify any balcony or garden, they attract and feed bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Planting these species is a concrete gesture you can make to support biodiversity and the survival of local pollinators. And these winged workers will return the favor in exchange for this summer buffet of pollen and nectar. They will take the opportunity to visit the other flowers in your garden and thus promote productivity.
The seeds were grown in Montreal by the seed company Terre Promise without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers and were harvested and selected by hand. They are free of rights and reproducible.
