Here are some pictures from my summer 2017 garden of plants that attract bees and other pollinators.
Pictured above are:
- Autumn Sunflowers
- Black-eyed Susan
- French Lavender
- Cucumber plants
- Lemon Balm, Basil, and other herbs
In the mid-Atlantic, all of my flowers are in full bloom in late July and early August.
Here are some links that I have found helpful in my search for creating a sustainable garden.
