It’s easy for us in the Seed Farming industry to get excited about bees…after all, we understand how important these buzzing buddies are for propagating plants! And if you’re not hip to bees, maybe you should consider a world without them. Name a fruit you enjoy—anything from apples to oranges. Yeah, that whole industry shrivels up without bees. Well, if you can’t have apple pie, at least you can still have the scoop of vanilla ice cream, right? Wrong. Bees are essential for the growth of vanilla beans as well.
Unfortunately, the world’s bee populations are struggling right now. The good news is that helping them is relatively simple. If gardeners and other landowners plant just a few pollen-producing flowers, this will help stimulate local bee populations.
Interested? Great! Hancock Seed can help get you started. We offer three distinct blends of wildflower seeds aimed at benefiting bees.
