MNL has partnered with the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources and the Lawns to Legumes program to design pollinator gardens to help create habitat for the endangered Rusty Patched Bumble Bee.  Our Rusty Patched Bumble Bee Full Gardens are available in Full Sun, Part Shade, and Rain Garden options.   Larger than our regular kits, all Rusty Patched Bumble Bee Full Gardens come with six plants of 12 different species for a total of 72 native perennials!  We suggest planting these gardens in a 100 square foot area.

This garden is designed for areas of your yard with filtered sunlight and shade and is a perfect fit for the Native Pocket Plantings in the Lawns to Legumes program. We designed this collection to have multiple flowering species in all of the bloom seasons and to contain flowers that are of high priority and super foods for the Rusty Patched Bumble Bee.
