The Cosmos come-on

Posted by blueberrytalk on September 14, 2011

Here’s the plan: Use a plant like Cosmos to draw bumblebees to our farm. (Cosmos keeps opening new buds from late summer through fall.) The bumblebees overwinter on our farm and next spring we have a good supply of pollinators. (Honeybees enjoy Cosmos as well. I like the colour of this honeybee.)
