One of the biggest problems, especially for migrating pollinators, is the lack of late summer and early fall nectar producing plants. We need to have fall feeding plants to refuel butterflies and hummingbirds. Our native bees and bumblebees find fall nectar crucial for overwintering here in Ontario.
In response to this newest data, we have launched a line of heavy nectar producing plants. These plants produce nectar over the period of July to October.
Of course, producing food is only one piece of the whole puzzle. To ensure survival of all our pollinators, all the necessities of life must be provided. Please see our bee articles for further information.
