The Plenty for Pollinators Garden Kit is a collection of plants that will provide milkweed for monarchs, plenty of nectar for all, and good pollen for bees from April to October. We have also included a large variety of colors and heights in this kit for evolving beauty throughout the season. The plants were chosen for their tolerance to different moisture, soil, and sun requirements for the most flexibility and success.

Design and Planting Tips:

  • Prepare your garden site (follow the link for details as well as information about plant spacing)
  • A location with full sun to partial shade, and moderate soil moisture is ideal for this grouping
  • Group plants of the same species together
  • Consider the height of each plant. Position taller plants at the back and shorter plants at the front
