How Did You Get That Name?
The state insect for Arkansas is the western honey bee (Apis mellifera). It is one of the commonly recognized pollinator species as well. Because Bonnie has an affinity for nature and flowering plants, Honeybee has a secondary mission of spreading the word about native plants for pollinator gardens. Native plants are ones that naturally occur in an area and are adapted for the climate -- including the soil, rainfall, and weather. As a homeowner, this means the plants rarely require watering since they are adapted to the amount of yearly rainfall. Savings! Pollinator gardens are flower beds that promote bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Did you know that even flies are pollinators?!
As an environmentally-aware company, Honeybee is paper-free and chooses decomposable swag rather than plastic pens and magnets. All clients receive a complimentary packet of wildflower seeds to grow their own pollinator garden. The seeds were sourced from Holland Wildflower Farm in Elkins, AR. You can find more of their plants and seeds at hollandwildflowerfarm.com.
