Fall is a very important time for pollinators. During this time, they are either migrating (which is the case with Monarchs) or trying to store food up for the long winter (Honey Bees and various species of native bees are busily buzzing around). Our Fall Pollinator Fuel Mix contains the species that bloom in the Fall and provide the maximum amount of forage (Goldenrod and Aster species) for these important insects. We've also added Partridge Pea, a great late summer annual and a staff favorite, Ironweed. This mix works well in full sun and mesic soils.
