Spare dandelions to feed the bees
Before you mow your dandelions, consider how food options for pollinators are scarce this time of year. Those sunny little flowers are a very important source of pollen for bees in the spring. Dandelion pollen is nutritious and the nectar is abundant - it gives bees a huge boost and adds to the health and wellbeing of the hive. So a very simple, easy way to help honey bees thrive is to refrain from killing the dandelions in your lawn. Plus, they’re actually quite pretty!
