We all know that most of the food we eat, and indeed all the plants in our ecosystem, cannot exist without the help of pollinators. As populations of bees and other pollinating wildlife continue to come under threat, more and more gardeners are taking an interest in providing food sources for pollinators in their outdoor spaces. Containers offer environmentally conscious gardeners a flexible solution for planting pollinator-friendly varieties, especially for customers without large yards. You can help your customers support the pollinators in their neighborhood by sharing ideas for container designs, giving out growing advice and stocking plants that attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Here are a few examples of plants your customers might be looking for.
