Spring will be here Monday and planting season is about to get underway. Here's a great opportunity to "Help Bring Back the Bees" thanks to General Mills and Honey Nut Cheerios! Help bring back the bees with a free packet of wildflower seeds! GET THEM HERE.
Did you know...
...1 in 3 bites of food we eat is made possible by bees and other pollinators?
...42% of bee colonies in the U.S. collapsed in 2015?
...70 out of the top 100 human food crops are pollinated by bees?
Well now you do! SO GET YOUR SEEDS HERE.
Buzz and his friends at Honey Nut Cheerios have pledged to give away 100 million wildflower seeds, in partnership with Veseys Seeds, to get the movement started. Use #BringBackTheBees to spread the word!
Here are some tips for planting your wildflower seeds:
- Plant in the spring, post-frost
- Choose a non-windy day
- Wildflowers flourish in moist soil
- Weed, weed, weed!
- Mow high in the fall and leave seed-rich clippings
