Honey bee on flower

Help your local honey bees by planting bee-friendly plants. These plants can help the bees produce more honey, which you can then extract and jar. Certain plants can even affect the taste of the honey. 

Honey bees are not the only ones that benefit from blooming plants. Bumble bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, and many other pollinators visit the garden. They will all benefit from your bee-friendly garden design. 

Learn about bee-friendly gardens and plants at our Pollinator Plants for Honey Bees class on September 29, 2021, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Held at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center, local beekeeper, and honey bee guru, James Wierman will present on plants that will help increase pollination rates of native bees and honey bees.
