My Secrets to Attract Bees to My Garden


Seeing my orchard and my garden flowering and covered with bees makes me happy year after year.

But this blog post is about bees only, so lets focus on them, yes?

Colorful plants like those of my Mammoth sunflowers do the trick:

I notice that bees love the flowers of my lime and lemon trees, they suck the nectar out of them and pollinate them:

The bees also love the flowers of my palm trees and the bottle brush tree. This spring my palm trees were flowering and attracted hundreds of bees:

Bee Nutrition Facts:

All Bees get all of their carbohydrates from floral nectar and their protein from floral pollen.

Bees rely on flowers to supply them with the food they need to survive. Some flowers (e.g. tomatoes) provide only pollen, the main source of protein for bees. Other flowers (e.g. clovers) provide both nectar and pollen, thus providing both protein and carbohydrates.
