23 Organic Products for Every Yard and Garden Issue

This year’s garden late June

For years, we have always tried to use mostly organic products around our yard and gardens. Since I started beekeeping almost four years ago, everything had to change. It was no longer an option to be non-organic. Going chemical free was important for the bees and important in the long run for my young family. Today I thought that I would share some products that we have found beneficial over the years. A huge thanks goes out to my friends at Country Garden, who are always eager to show us something new!

As always, even though products are organic it does not mean that they cannot harm honeybees and fellow pollinators. So do not apply to plants with blooms or during the day when the pollinators are out. If you must use these products apply them early in the morning or around dusk when the pollinators have returned home for the evening.
