There is a growing problem these days where bees are concerned. Their population is dwindling due to habitat loss and climate change. As a result, these valuable pollinators are becoming less able to contribute to major food sources. It’s important to keep bees alive and start to see their numbers grow. Schaaf Floral suggests that by maintaining a healthy garden or yard that attracts bees, we can do our part in re-establishing their homes and numbers. Providing fresh water and a bit of shade, including bee-friendly flowers in your outdoor space, and keeping your yard and garden free of harmful pesticides are all ways we can help bees and fight their declining numbers. Bees are attracted to bright yellows and reds, as well as deep blues and purples, and they love simple, single petal flowers like daisies and sunflowers.
A bouquet like our Vivid Blooms includes beautiful examples of bee-friendly flowers like roses, sunflowers, Gerbera daisies, and lilies. Invite bees to your garden with flowers like these.
Help restore the balance in our world’s ecosystem by participating in the protection of bees. Helping these industrious neighbors by providing tools for them to live and work well goes a long way in building their numbers.
