Bright Yellow Sunflowers Enjoy Visits from the Bees

Oak Grove Plantation

Oak Grove Plantation Sunflowers: Bees Come Free


Sunflowers! Now is the time to fill your house with them. They are big, bright and beautiful. And they bring our lovely city bees down from the nearby rooftops down to the greenmarkets to say hello.

At least three farms had beautiful bunches today at the Union Square Greenmarket.

Some of the blooms are bigger than dessert plates. So grab every vase you have and fill them up with sunflowers. They last a good long time if you refresh the water and trim the stems every day or two.

Thanks to these farms for the flowers and the bees:

  1. Oak Grove Plantation

  2. The River Garden

  3. Dutchmill Gardens
