Save the bees with these 700 pollinator-friendly flower seeds
At Eden Brothers, we never want you to feel bad about sacrificing space in your vegetable garden or backyard to grow more flowers. In our humble opinion, there really aren’t enough flowers in the world, and we think the bees and butterflies would agree.
Native pollinators and beneficial insects are dying at an alarming rate due to habitat loss and climate change. Fortunately, growing any one of these gorgeous flower seeds will provide habitat and food sources for native pollinators like solitary bees and migratory butterflies. Do your part to save the bees by planting these pollinator-friendly flowers in your garden.
Some of our favorite flowers are a favorite with the bees and butterflies, too–summer annuals like calendula, cosmos, and zinnia seem to attract the most pollinators, but other flowers are equally important. Native plants and perennials like Asclepias and blanket flower are important year-round food sources and also provide a place for insects to overwinter.
Plant a wildflower meadow to attract native pollinators
Pick out your favorite varieties, but if you’d rather not sort through all 700 of these pollinator-attractor flower seeds, consider planting one of these Eden Brothers’ exclusive wildflower mixes. Choose between the All-Perennial or All-Annual Mix or get super pollinator-specific with the Bee Happy Organic Bee Attractor Wildflower Seed Mix or the Bird and Butterfly Wildflower Seed Mix. Better yet, plant both mixes and let all the pollinators flock to your garden.
If you like you can also sort wildflower seed mixes by color to complement your personal taste and style. There’s a wildflower seed mix for every color of the rainbow, and each mix is suitable for all regions of North America. Some wildflower seed mixes are even personalized to your state!
Planting wildflower seeds is so easy–simply scatter the seeds over bare earth and gently press them into the soil. Before long your wildflower seeds will sprout, and not long after you’re sure to see bees and other insects moving into town, While there are those among us that love orderly rows, you’ll want to leave some portion of your pollinator patch a little wild and unruly, for the pollinators’ sake.

The best pollinator attractor seeds on the market
Pollinator-attractor seeds are some of the easiest seeds to plant and the quickest flowers to bloom. A vast majority of our pollinator seeds can be direct-sown in the garden, although a few specialty varieties, like four o'clocks and snapdragons, do better when started indoors.
For best results, plant a combination of annual, perennial, and biennial varieties. Not only will your garden provide year-round habitat for pollinators, but you’ll have a continuously-blooming garden all season long.
At Eden Brothers, we believe that the best gardens start with quality seeds–it’s why we guarantee that our seeds will never contain GMOs or other additives. No matter which seed variety of flower mix you choose, you can plant with confidence knowing that your seeds are the highest quality seeds available on the market.
That’s a lot of good energy that will be sure to be returned to you with vibrant blooms and abundant harvests. And, of course, plenty of buzzing bees. Spring is here and summer is just around the corner, so order your pollinator attractor seeds today and get planting!
