New bee lawn resources from UMN Extension

UMN Extension now has new materials on everything you need to know to grow your own bee lawn! UMN researchers have spent several years studying bee lawns and the pollinators that benefit from them. These resources (written by Turfgrass Scientist Kristine Moncada, Turfgrass Extension Educator Maggie Reiter and James Wolfin of Metro Blooms) combine the results of all this work so everyone can learn the steps in establishing and maintaining a bee lawn. Don’t forget to consult the new page, Planting and maintaining a bee lawn, for all your bee lawn questions.
