If April showers bring May flowers, now’s the time to learn what to watch for – or plant – in your pollinator gardens. Several recent Kerr Center publications can help – download them all as an Earth Day treat! Then, pass that treat along to pollinators by putting the information to work, giving them a hand by preserving habitat and planting pollinator-friendly plants, trees and shrubs.
Native Plants for Native Pollinators in Oklahoma compiles our entire series of pollinator plant profiles under a single cover. Cover Crops as Beneficial Insect Habitat covers the ways that the Cannon Horticulture Project is using cover crops to support pollinators and other beneficial insects in a farm/garden setting. Trees and Shrubs for Oklahoma of Value to Pollinators comes in two parts, and does for woody plants what Native Plants for Native Pollinators does for herbaceous ones, in a more condensed format.
