February 13, 2020 Meeting:
Dr Holly Scoggins presents: Garden Plants for Bees
Can a few garden plants carry a hive? Absolutely not! But with some thoughtful plant choices, you can add some pollen and nectar resources plus learn by observing bee foraging behaviors. Holly shares advice on gardening for bees, including a bit of plant physiology, seasonal plant selections, planting tips, and more.
Please join us on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 6:30 pm at the Montgomery County Health and Human Services Building at 210 Pepper St., Christiansburg
