UGA Bee Lab Pollinator Plant Sale 2024

When: April 20th, 10 am – 2 pm
Where: Horticulture Farm, 1221 Hog Mountain Rd. Watkinsville, 30677

We are very excited about our this year’s pollinator plant sale! The pollinator plants we will be selling have been carefully selected to attract a variety of pollinators (big and small) along with other beneficial insects to your yard. There will be an array of individual pollinator plants for sale along with pollinator garden flats which will include a selection of plants. These flats are for those new to gardening in Georgia, new to pollinator gardens or for those who don’t want to think about which plants to select. It can be confusing!

There will also be information about each plant to help guide you in your planting process. We want your pollinator garden to be successful, which is why we chose plants suited for the Piedmont region of Georgia and ones we have personally observed for attracting pollinators.

Thank you for your support and interest in protecting pollinators. For questions, please email:
