Pollinator Starter Kit – 18 pots (2.5″)



This pollinator starter kit is a great way to begin gardening with natives or simply to add diversity to a planting you already have growing! We have selected these plants to provide beneficial pollinator habitat for the full growing season (or from pasqueflowers to New England asters)!

Each garden kit comes with a complete Step-by-Step Guide that you can download here.

This garden kit comes with a variety of host plants for pollinator larvae was well as nectar sources for adult pollinators. The pasqe flowers are an important pollen source for emerging bumblebee queens, the meadow blazing star is the preferred pollen source for migrating monarchs, the blanket flower supports the federally endangered Dakota Skipper, and the grasses are hosts plants for butterfly caterpillars.

This kit comes with enough plants to start a small 6×6 foot garden. If you desire a larger garden, simply buy two or three starter packs, or add additional plants from our selection of potted plants.
