Busy Bee Nursery’s current plant list for the 2017 season is now online! You can view the plant list from our website at http://grassyroadsfarm.com/busybee-plants/. All of our plants are ones that attract and benefit honey bees, native pollinators, and/or wildlife. This year they are also all native to Kentucky.
Included on the list are favorites such as butterflyweed, several species of coneflower, and wild blue indigo, as well as, lesser known plants such as three species of mountain mints and two species of fall asters. Honey bees and native bees love the asters and mountain mints. For the first time, we also have two species of trees / shrubs that are great for pollinators and wildlife. We may be adding a few additional plants to the list later this season. All of our plants were started from seed by us and have been grown without any pesticides or herbicides.
We sell our plants at the SoKY Farmers Market, at a few open houses that we schedule throughout the year, and by individual appointments to visit the nursery. Our first open house of the season will be May 7 from 1:00-4:00. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment to visit the nursery.
