Enhancing Urban and Suburban Landscapes to Protect Pollinators

The way we garden and manage the landscapes of the Northwest can help promote the health of bees, butterflies and other insects. Homeowners, gardeners, landscape professionals and volunteer groups all can work to attract a wide range of pollinators to their properties. This guide offers detailed plant lists, garden designs and advice on creating pollinator habitat. Once plants are in the ground, learn to keep them healthy without exposing pollinating insects to pesticides that are toxic to them.

This is a wonderful resource. I am new to understanding the bees here in the PNW. This guide has been very helpful. I love the clear and understandable graphics.

Ummm.... given the level of confusion we often see with clients, might the fungicide definition better be refined to "plant FUNGAL pathogens", since fungicides do nothing to counteract bacterial of viral pathogens. Just a thought....

Thank you for publishing this valuable resource. I will certainly refer to it when asked questions by local gardeners and direct them to it as a resource for them.
