DescriptionWe realize that this type of article is a departure for FNN readers but feel that it is important for forest, conservation, and native plant nurseries to be good environmental stewards. In addition, establishing a pollinator garden at your nursery can be good for business, too. Demonstrating the role and beauty of native plants and their pollinators, particulary in a small garden setting, might be a way to improve sales. The plight of pollinators has been in the news a lot lately, and many species of bees, butterflies and other insect pollinators, as well as bats and birds that pollinate, are in serious trouble.
