Excited to learn about enabling pollinators! Looking for some tips targeted towards people who mostly do container gardening on their decks or patios.
Margaret Kellner

Clover also adds nitrogen to the soil to help grass. and it's drought resistant!
Priya Singh
31:11
can you please put the name of those turf replacements in the chat
Beth Rosen
35:12
We will be answering questions at the end of the presentation. Please feel free to add your questions/comments in the chat box and Drs. Carley and Spafford will answer later :)
Jennifer Gilmore

Is there a good place to buy mountain mint? I have looked for it a number of times and haven't seen it in a long time. It's so pretty.
Julia Law
37:59
I'm having such difficulty with rabbits eating my aster, cone flower, zennias, among others. I keep trying to find polinators that are rabbit resistant (salvia, sedum). Do you have any other suggestions??
Anne Spafford
38:27
Remind me, Julia to talk about pine cones!
Kyle Keith
38:58
<3 cone flowers!
Priya Singh
39:07
Is neem oil considered bad for pollinators?
Adam Bensley
40:11
@jennifer - Big Bloomers in Sanford had it the last time I was there in May
Lindsey Mihalov Watts
40:28
Is there a natural/organic herbicide that's considered "safe" for pollinators? Perhaps a homemade spray with vinegar, salt, soap, etc.
Yan Geng
40:44
are Japanese beetles pollinators?
Adam Bensley
46:25
The middle picture almost looks like an impressionist painting
Janice Sitzes
46:36
Beautiful!
Adam Bensley
48:34
Is there a pattern or method for the intermingled planting?
Priya Singh
49:15
this is such a great slide!!!!
Janice Sitzes
49:21
YES!
Beth Rosen
49:33
right?? I'm gonna purchase this book ASAP :)

Priya Singh
50:32
would be nice to have a planting chart to go with this
Priya Singh
50:42
plant this time and blooms this time
Janice Sitzes
51:10
@Adam Bensley, is Wolfpack a perennial or annual? :)
Margaret Hudacko -she- -her-
51:37
The scavenger hunt shortcut is go.ncsu.edu/beehunt
Priya Singh
52:44
can you share some trees we can ask our HOA to plant in our neighborhood to help pollinators?
Adam Bensley
52:49
@janice, perennial! haha
Janice Sitzes
53:53
I planted some Johnny-jump-up seeds last year, and the bees love those flowers. And they self-seeded—big time!
Adam Bensley
57:14
Field to Cottage nursery is a Wake Co. source of native plants https://www.fieldtocottage.com/
Kyle Keith
58:04
Would also recommend cleome, or spider flowers!
Priya Singh
58:24
@Kyle - summer bloom?
Margaret Kellner
58:26
Don't confuse butterfly weed with butterfly bushes. Butterfly bushes (buddleia) are ok, but not as nutritious as so many others.
Jennifer Gilmore
58:55
The bunnies eat my blazing star :(
Kyle Keith
59:07
@priya mine are coming up now -- they spread everywhere and self seed!
Priya Singh
59:25
awesome! thankyou :)
Alison Edwards
01:00:34
should you cut the cone flowers to promote more blooms? do you leave them until they die off?
Adam Bensley
01:01:17
The gold finches always come for my coneflower seeds. So nice!
Janice Sitzes
01:01:50
Thank you for the name of muhly grass. I have long admired it at Cary’s Godbold Park, and never knew what it was.
Trisha Hailperin
01:01:55
Buddleia is invasive and Butterfly Weed is so much prettier IMO.
Janice Sitzes
01:02:38
Where and how can we buy this book? Maybe have an author’s book signing in Talley? :)
Adam Bensley
01:03:34
Good question, Janice. Does more money come back to the amazing authors if we buy somewhere other than Amazon?
Kyle Keith
01:03:59
Noticed no one in any of the webinars this week, to my knowledge, mentioned hydrangeas? Are they "all flower and no substance" for pollinators?
Margaret Kellner
01:04:23
When planting in bunches, I'm always thrown off by how far apart the instructions say to plant the bulbs/plants, but still want a filled in look. If plants are 18" apart, it looks weird.
Janice Sitzes
01:05:12
I’ve never seen any bees in my hydrangea bush.
Trisha Hailperin
01:05:18
Awesome Zoom!
Janice Sitzes
01:05:47
Yes, this has been awesome!
Kelsey McCorkle
01:05:55

Amaaazing session! Would love to support the speakers and buy the book
Priya Singh

Tim Ketchie
01:09:10
Any suggestions on how to deal with HOAs that are not fond of letting areas in the landscape naturalize?
Danesha Seth Carley
01:09:21
hydrangeas, I think, provide little pollen and/nectar so they are more work for bees to feed off. However, deer are not supposed to eat them, so that's a winner
Anne Spafford
01:09:21
The Bunnies! I collect pine cones and encircle new plants (with that super tasty new growth) with them. Bunnies HATE stepping on them....

Margaret Kellner
01:14:23
I've also put cages over some of my shorter plants, so the bunnies and deer can't get to them.
Julia Law
01:14:39
thank you!! I'm going to gather all the pine cones.
Beth Rosen
01:14:51

Peppermint oil diluted in water deters spider mites. I learned that spraying at night is good but rinse it off in the morning.
Margaret Kellner
01:17:05
Predatory mites will eat spider mites and then cannibalize themselves. They worked great for my outdoor spider mite infestation! You can buy them online.
Cari Furiness
01:17:48
What was the name of the film?
Priya Singh
01:18:00
