Insects aren’t the only visitors to my garden – lots of people have stopped to talk with me while I’m working outside. Early in 2018, I created an educational brochure and placed it in my garden for when I’m not there. You can view a PDF version of the brochure. (The illustrations of bee nests are from author Heather Holm’s posters and are used with her permission.)

I cover the requirements of a successful pollinator garden, and where to find native plants in the Ottawa area. I recently updated it to add pollinator-friendly garden maintenance tips. Hundreds brochure have been taken so far.

Brochures available in the garden.
