Perennial Pollinator

    Description

For every yield-robbing pest, there are 1,700 other insects that are beneficial. In order to build beneficial populations, you need to supply food and shelter. This mix covers both areas with our blend of clovers and other legumes providing flowers from early spring until winter. Forbs like Plantain, Chicory, and Small Burnett create the perfect home for shelter and laying eggs. If you want to promote a consistent life in your field, this is the mix for you!
