FIVE FLOWERING VEGETABLES THAT BEES, BUTTERFLIES AND POLLINATORS LOVE
Good early food source that provides both pollen and nectar. Beans, including broad beans, flower from midsummer through autumn.
These include mustard, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower that can be planted successively all year round. They provide both nectar and pollen from spring to autumn.
Plant cucumber, zucchini, melon and pumpkin in full sun. They flower from spring to autumn, to provide both nectar and pollen.
Bees love this hardy perennial though it provides only pollen. It flowers in late summer to autumn.
Just as we have learnt to love the flavour of the flowers, bees love the nectar and pollen in them.
