Pollinator Diversity and Raspberry Heaven

Raspberry Heaven is buzzing! The raspberry plants have grown to enormous proportions in this area of the garden where it used to be overgrown with grasses and briers not even 2 years ago. Now many different pollinators are feasting on the nectar the raspberry flowers are producing and to return the favor the plants get pollinated helping them produce fruit. We are building biodiversity in our gardens primarily by providing food and shelter for the insects year around.
