Pollinator Stories

My family and I made an effort to stratify and plant purple coneflowers, sunflowers, and black-eyed Susans this spring! Here is how they are looking as of June 10, 2021. Also fortunate to have perennial clover and Virginia spiderwort grow in my Clintonville alleyway, which the bumblebees are already taking to! While our pollinator supporting plants are growing, unfortunately, our experiment with growing common milkweed has not been successful – hope others have had some success around here, let us know, and #ContinueTheFlight! - Joe Campbell

For the last several years I have been enamored with Zinnias and they've become a feature of my urban backyard garden. Many seeds have been planted this spring and are sprouting. This spring, I've introduced white yarrow to an area in my yard that is my "meadow" and a work in progress. Pink yarrow currently lines a section of my yard. - Molly Bean
