Why You Need Flowers in the Vegetable Garden: Pollination and Pest Management - Palo Alto

Saturday, June 4, 2022

Flowers brighten our food gardens, add color to our summer salads, and attract pollinators—and they do much more! Master gardeners will explain the important role flowers play in feeding the insects that help to control vegetable pests. Learn what type of flowers are the best to grow among your edibles to attract “natural enemies” of aphids, stinkbugs, and other insect pests. With luck, you will get to see some of these garden helpers enjoying the flowers we have planted for them.
