Plant a pantry for pollinators! Flower and plant pictures with text. Pollinator Pantry Provider - Hillermann Nursery and Florist,
       Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day, and yet pollinators are at critical point in their own survival. Many reasons contribute to their recent decline. We know for certain, however, that more nectar and pollen sources provided by more flowering plants and trees will help improve their health and numbers. Increasing the number of pollinator-friendly gardens and landscapes will help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across the country.
       As a "Pollinator Pantry Provider" in conjunction with the St. Louis County Park's Pollinator Pantry Garden program, we offer many plants for you to create you pollinator gardens.
Here are some links for more information on pollinators
and pollinator gardens:

Swallowtail butterfly caterpillar on parsley at Hillermann Nursery and Florist   Swallowtail Butterfly Caterpillar at Hillermann Nursery and Florist  
       Don't worry if you have some of these types of caterpillars feasting on your parsley. These colorful guests will eat their fill and then transform into beautiful butterflies that will help pollinate flowers and edible plants as they sip nectar from blooms. Parsley is a hardy plant and there is often more than you need in the garden. It will grow back once the baby butterflies are done eating and become beautiful flying flowers.
       There are good bugs and bad bugs in the garden. Research any that you are not familiar with or come ask us whether a bug in your garden is good or bad. We can help learn more about natural products for plant pests and problems that will be safer for good bugs and your family.

By Patty Lynch
       The dog days of summer here in the Midwest can remind one of the Sahara. Yet, some plants refuse to be taken down by Mother Nature. You could call them the Ultimate fighters of the horticulture world. These plants have stood the test of time and have been selected not only because they are hardy and easy to grow, but because they can withstand hot, dry summers better than most others. It also helps to choose plants native to our area because they adapt to changing climate conditions. Besides selecting drought tolerant plants, consider the soil. Conditioning the soil with organic matter helps to retain moisture.
Baptisia perennial plant blooms       The following is a list of drought & heat tolerant (once established) perennials, trees, & shrubs...
Baptisia - Blue indigo flower spikes in spring on shrub like plant 3-4' tall x 3-4' wide. Seed pods turn black in fall. Attracts butterflies.
