MSHS Pollinator Plant Packs

Monarchs • Bees • Butterflies • Hummingbirds

MSHS wants gardeners to have easy options for planting pollinator gardens for our struggling pollinators, so we created Pollinator Plant Packs.

You can purchase our Pollinator Plant Packs for your home or community garden at MSHS' Spring Open House Fundraiser, Saturday, June 1, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at garden centers or plant sales near you this spring! A detailed list of where you may purchase the Pollinator Plant Packs will be available in early spring 2019.
