Phase 1 of the pollinator meadow that we planted with perennials during the summer of 2018 was filled with leaves that needed to be raked in the early spring. This revealed a lot of bare dirt that is good for ground nesting bees and annual seeds to sprout. Not much was available in this section as nectar or other food sources for pollinators.
However, Phase 2 of the meadow that we planted with a seed mix in December 2018 was filled with a variety of blooms from April until early June. The seed mix was a combination of two commercial pollinator mixes from Native American Seed, from seeds donated by Oklahoma Native Plant Society members, and seeds locally collected by volunteers on the day of planting.
