Right Now! Attracting Pollinators to East Tennessee Gardens

Blount County Master Gardeners are proud to announce the publication of Right Now! Attracting Pollinators to East Tennessee Gardens.  It's the sequel to our popular Right Here! Plants that Thrive in East Tennessee, of which over 600 copies were distributed.  Our new book, Right Now! is a valuable resource to gardeners and landscapers who are concerned about the alarming decline of pollinators – the bees, butterflies, and moths that are so critical to our food supply chain

81 plants are featured (63% native) in easy to read essays by 30 Blount County Master Gardeners, with 91 photos by 16 BCMG photographers. A detailed chart provides information on bloom time, pollinators attracted, pollen and nectar source quality, and butterfly larval host.

“I commend the Blount County Master Gardeners on another excellent publication that shares their love of plants and pollinators with the local community…” - Natalie R. Bumgarner, Ph.D.
