Attracting Pollinators to Your Ontario Garden: Plants That Bees, Butterflies, and Hummingbirds Love

Pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds are essential for our planet and great for your garden! Whether it’s to help your garden flourish or because you just love the wildlife, you may be looking for some plants that attract pollinators for your yard. In this blog, we’ll discuss some of the benefits these pollinators provide and then recommend some plants that they love!

Benefits of Pollinators

Pollinators are essential to fertilizing your plants, improving the yield and quality of your garden. When pollinators visit your garden, they transfer pollen from one flower to another, which leads to the production of more seeds. Pollination also leads to the production of healthy, robust fruits and vegetables that are more resistant to disease and pests, allowing your garden to grow healthily and thrive.

Additionally, the healthy garden these pollinators assist with is great for you! Having a healthy garden reduces the need for maintenance and helps to prevent the need for pest and disease management. And, of course, your blooming garden will beautify your space!
