Did you know the bee population is on the decline? Bees are dying out due to many environmental factors. Bees have played a vital role as pollinators of important crops, contributing to our world’s food sources. But now, bees are losing out and may eventually disappear. We can help on a local level simply by creating spaces in our yards that invite bees to work and live safely. Planting bright blooming s like suns, daisies, marigolds, and hydrangea are a great way to encourage bee growth in your garden. Provide shade and some fresh water and watch bees become regular visitors. No garden to speak of? Tobler’s Flowers encourages you to use whatever outdoor space you have, like a porch, patio, or balcony, to display bee-friendly s for our small friends. Read More about Suns For You And The Bees »
Which one of us hasn't followed a butterfly as it flitted about a garden? There is something fascinating about this delicate creature that is seemingly arbitrary in where it lands, yet we know that it is actually on a search for the brightest s and sweetest nectar.

Both of these industrious insects are critical to our ecosystem, and our lives are more interconnected than most of us know. This summer, how about creating gardens to attract both bees and butterflies, and in doing so, making our world just a little better. Tobler's Flowers is here to provide the colorful s that bees and butterflies will love.
Won't I Get Stung? Experts tell us that honeybees hard at work almost never sting. The exception is if they are threatened, cornered, or harassed. Given their exceptionally important work - we rely on them for our world-wide food supply, after all - it is worth the effort to help them to thrive. Simply stand back and allow them to work without scaring them, and you shouldn't have any issues. Read More about Bees, Butterflies & Flower Gardens »
