Bees are worth more than honey alone - they are important pollinators! - pixiespocket.com

What’s the buzz? When you are planning your garden for the upcoming spring season, don’t forget to make a place for the pollinators!

Everyone’s aware of the plight of the bees, and that’s wonderful! People need to be concerned, because bees are much more important than just making the sweet stuff that we know and love. Bees are good for more than honey alone. These perfect little hive-minded heroines are ideal pollinators for all of your plants.

Bees aren’t the only pollinators that need your help, though.
