You’ll need:

  • A cardboard egg carton

Adding plants like this to your yard – whether in a raised bed or windowsill – helps restore the pollinator population, which plays a huge role in keeping our fruit and vegetable harvests bountiful.

    I planted some Lavender and it has grown really large and every day, there are always 6-7 bees on this beautiful plant. Perfect way to bring pollinators in the garden!
