Save the bees!

It turns out that where you buy your plants has a big impact on the future of our bee populations.

Please don’t buy any flowers, bushes, and trees from: Lowes, Home Depot, and Walmart. Their nursery stock is treated with pesticides that kill bees. I bought two Hidcote Lavender plants from Home Depot earlier this year, before I knew.  But I’ll avoid all those big retail chain nurseries in the future. Bees are SO important and irreplaceable. Hope you look elsewhere for your nursery stock, too. Local nurseries may charge a bit more, but it’s worth it to preserve the bees.
