Flowering Bee Lawns with James Wolfin
April 19, 2022
In this video, James Wolfin, an entomologist and Conservation Specialist with Twin City Seed Company, teaches the steps for converting a traditional turfgrass lawn into a beautiful, flowering bee lawn that promotes pollinator health, water quality, and natural resource conservation. Bee lawns have been shown to support more than 65 bee species while maintaining the typical function associated with a conventional home lawn.
