BEES AND POLLINATORS
BEES & HONEY
We offer pure, raw, local honey in several varieties 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. These varieties of lavender are grown on our farm and infused slowly into the honey.
WHY WE LOVE HONEY:
A natural remedy for seasonal allergies
Honey is a superfood!
Park Place Perennials is passionate about supporting our native pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. By adding flowers and plants to your landscape that provide food and shelter for pollinators throughout the year and by embracing pollinator friendly landscape practices, you can help make a difference!
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 over winter, this also will help with weed control. In Oregon, focus on plants that provide bloom in late April when blooms become scarce.
