A handy and beautifully designed card deck featuring a diverse array of plants, flowers, and trees and related growing information that makes it easy for anyone to cultivate and maintain pollinator-friendly plants in their own garden.

Gardeners of all levels can join in the movement toward ecologically friendly gardening and welcome diverse species of birds, butterflies, and more to their backyard or balcony gardens or farms, by simply choosing pollinator plants that will thrive in their environment.

The 109 cards included in The Pollinator Garden Planning Deck are brimming with information and full-color photographs of a diverse assortment of wildflowers, shrubs, trees, and grasses whose nectar and pollen nurture a range of pollinators. Many are perennials, meaning they are easy to maintain and require little upkeep. Specific species in the deck are native to the United States, but many of the plants have European counterparts.

Each card features a vibrant photo and describes the size, color, growing conditions, planting considerations, nourished pollinators, and special qualities of these pollinator plants. With more than 100 profiled plants, the deck can easily be sorted and grouped to find the right selection for your garden, season by season, making it a wonderfully customizable resource.

Great for home gardeners, landscape designers, and educational programs, this practical and inspiring gardening deck makes it easy to plant for pollinators, from native bees to Monarch butterflies, hummingbirds, beneficial insects, and much more, and ensure you have blooms throughout the season.
