Those winged beauties are all over those two plants on sunny days at our farm's Harvest Your Own Bouquet garden. Sunflowers grow best in areas with direct sunlight. Give them plenty of room, and use bamboo stakes to give their stems the support they need to grow tall. Enjoy your garden Best advice for your pollinator garden is BE THERE! Do the common sense gardening methods, use compost for aerated soil, mulch, and celebrate when you see a wiggly worm working for you! Be present to notice, nourish, and pull a weed. Tip your head back and feel the warmth of the sun on your face. Close your eyes and inhale the joy of the season. Susan Hurd is owner of Hurds' Family Farm. A portion of the farm is a National Wildlife Certified Habitat, where wildlife may find quality food, water, cover, and places to raise their young. The farm has a pollinator garden that attracts bees and butterflies. ...We take care of kids... 104 Fulton Avenue (Main oce) Poughkeepsie, NY 12603 845.452.1700 THE PEDIATRICIANS OF THE HUDSON VALLEY SM /FXCVSHIt.PEFOBt'JTILJMM )PQFXFMM+VODUJPOt)ZEF1BSLtKingston 1BXMJOHt1PVHILFFQTJFt3IJOFCFDL We Know Kids.
