What’s the difference between organic gardening and non-organic gardening?
Non-organic farming uses chemical fertilizers to promote plant growth, genetically modified seeds, synthetic pesticides to kill insects on or near plants, and synthetic herbicides to kill weeds. Organic gardening relies on crop rotation, natural insect or bird predators, traps, manure-based fertilizers, mulches, and naturally derived weedkillers to keep pests and weeds away from your crops. We carry the gardening products and supplies you need for either type of gardening practice and are happy to assist you in deciding what is best for you and your family.
What garden plants are best for bees in our area?
Honey bees, solitary bees, and bumble bees are useful for pollinating vegetable and fruit crops in your home garden and they feed on a wide variety of flowering plants both native and non-native to Montana. If you plant a wide variety of flowering plants (including vegetables and herbs) you will be supporting bees. As far as native plants are concerned, in the spring we recommend willows, maples, linden, serviceberry, dandelion, crocus, calendula, borage, chokecherry, pussy willow, and leadplant. In the fall we recommend sedum, aster, Rocky Mountain bee plant, fireweed, goldenrod, Joe-pye weed, rabbitbrush, snakeweed, blanket flower, and several native thistle species.
