This informative and entertaining ebook combines my three earlier published ebooks about growing beautiful high-nectar garden flowers to attract bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. Those ebooks are Bee-loved Garden Flowers, Hummingbird Garden Flowers, and Great Garden Flowers for Butterflies.
An interest in attracting and protecting bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies has increased recently. The reason for this concerns the steady decrease in population and observation of these essential pollinators in our gardens and the wild. The reason for the decline is uncertain, but most agree it has to do with environmental problems like pesticides, habitat loss, and depletion of food sources.
This enhanced ebook provides information on flowers that can attract and increase the population of these pollinators. You can easily purchase these flowers in nurseries and garden centers, and if you are a more experienced gardener, you can grow them from seed.
We currently experience many problems, so why should we be concerned about these pollinators? The obvious answer is based on the act of pollinating. Flower gardening is not the ultimate rescue attempt to increase populations of these pollinators. What is important is that these pollinators also ultimately pollinate our food-based plants, such as fruit and vegetables. We must support our honeybees, bumblebees, and small solitary bee populations.
What would the world be like without the beauty of butterflies fluttering above beds of colorful flowers or being amazed at the shimmering feathers and avionic skills of hummingbirds? These pollinators are “flying art” to admire and wonder at. Are they less valuable in our attempt to preserve and enhance their numbers? The answer is a definite no!
Every nectar-enriched flower is vital in maintaining the health of each pollinator, and we, as gardeners, can assist in this crucial repopulation. Do your part by growing the flowers mentioned in this enhanced ebook to attract, feed, and nurture the health of these three amazing types of pollinators.
