Tip from an Organic Gardening reader
Someone wrote in that they quit watering their garden in the morning. Plants make the most nectar overnight when the plants are closed. By watering in the morning, nectar for the bees is being washed away. So he only waters after the flowers are closed. He has noticed an increase in the amount of bees in his garden. Hey, I'll try it. Anything to help the bee population.
