My husband is getting bees for the first time this Saturday. He is going to be the "bee guy" not me, but I want to help by planting nectar plants for bees.
Here's my special "intractable" problem: We have a large steep drainage ditch. I want to kill everything on it (grass and weeds) using pond liner, going piece by piece down the ditch.
What do I plant on steep dry slopes, moist bottom, from seed, that I don't have to mow or water much? Would love some answers! Need to get started on this project soon. Oh, it would be nice if some of what I planted attracted honey bees!
