2023 Pollinator Garden Flat Sale Huge Success
We want to thank everyone for purchasing the UGA Bee Lab's pollinator garden flats. Due to the number of folks excited about pollinators, there were over 60 new pollinator gardens created in Georgia this month. Think of all the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds being fed! We choose plants suitable for Georgia that bloom at different times of the year and attract a variety of different pollinators. All proceeds from this year's sale went towards supporting bee research. This was our first year growing and selling these flowers and we learned a lot. We plan to have another sale on Earth Day, April 20, 2024. If you have any questions about our pollinator garden flats, pollinator flowers or have suggestions on plants, please reach out to Jennifer at jbee@uga.edu.

Thanks to a new certification program through the Georgia Department of Agriculture called Honeybee Control and Removal, it will be easier for residents to locate licensed professionals to handle the job.
