BEES AND POLLINATORS

BEES & HONEY

We offer local honey from our own Honey Bee hives.  Our hives are all located on our farm and sit overlooking our blooming lavender fields.  Growing on our farm are also big leaf maples, berries, orchard trees, and our wildflower meadows – offering an amazing forage habitat for our bees! 

 

Our lavender honey is infused with the sweetness of our Lavender ‘Angustifolia’ varieties - these are culinary lavenders with a sweet, smooth flavor.

POLLINATORS

Park Place Perennials is passionate about supporting our native pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Growing flowers and plants that provide food and shelter throughout the year can help save our pollinators!

 

PLANTS FOR POLLINATORS

Aim for 3 different blooming plants per season for spring, summer, and Fall.  Include a bunch grass in your plantings for nesting sites in winter, this will also help with weed control.
