POLLINATOR CELEBRATION

National Pollinator Week is June 18 - 24, 2018

National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them. Eleven years ago, the U.S. Senate designated one week in June be Pollinator week. This week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, and butterflies. Join us on Saturday, June 23rd as we celebrate pollinator week in collaboration with The Henderson County Beekeepers Association.  They will be showcasing a live hive and discuss the importance of pollinators. Also, enjoy a stroll through our great selection of pollinator plants featuring many wonderful perennials, including the current and past "Perennial of the Year" plants.
