Custom blend of nectar - and pollen-producing flowers that honey bees love. Comprised of edible herbs, including borage, chives, sage, basil, lemon mint, coneflower, oregano, and creeping thyme. Warm season annuals and perennials: plant spring/early summer.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
Annual plants are plants with a life cycle that lasts only one year. They grow from seed, bloom, produce seeds, and die in one growing season. They then need to be replanted each spring.
Perennial plants live for more than two years. They return year after year and continue growing until they reach maturity, which varies by plant but averages three to five years.
