Session Description

Customers are becoming increasingly aware of threats to monarch butterflies, bees and biodiversity in general. Bees play an important role in the production of our food and having life in the garden makes it more enchanting. Any landscape can be a ‘pollinator garden’ and we’ll discuss how, with a brief discussion about pollinators themselves.

Suitable plants, maintenance techniques and sales techniques will be covered for the landscaper perspective and for the nursery perspective, touching on how these initiatives can be marketed to promote your business and educate the community.
