    • Dear Emily,

      I am interested about your post because I have a lot of pollinators in my neighborhood. One sentence that stands out me is “You want to have a variety of flowering plants that bloom throughout the growing season. This will provide a regular and diverse source of nectar and nutrients for pollinators. Native plants are the best to use because they evolved alongside our native pollinators — they were made for each other.” This stands out to me because I didn’t ever think about how the native plants grow along side the pollinators .
