Pollinator Garden

1. First mark out your area. We started with a simple circular garden. A stick drawing in the dirt is more than enough to provide some rough lines.

2. Arrange logs or old bales in the general shape of your garden.

3. Cover your logs or bales entirely with forest mulch.

4. Burrow a hole twice as deep and twice as wide as the size of each pot plant and fill the hole with a mixture of premium soil and well rotted compost.

5. Plant your plants in evenly spaced holes around the bed. We used a mixture of perennial basil, mountain marigolds, salvias and bromeliades to provide humidity and plenty of yellow and blue flowers which are favoured by native and honey bees alike.
