Large-scale Pollinator Planting

Large-scale pollinator plot

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all pollinator planting - the "best" seed mix and establishment methods will depend on your target pollinators species, soil type, drainage, sun, growing zone, size, budget, etc. While it will take more work up front, doing some research ahead of time can really make a difference in the success of your planting.  This page contains resources for installation and maintenance, sources for seeds and plants, and sources to help fund your pollinator planting.

MSU maintains a database of individuals and companies that can help install and maintain your pollinator planting. Spreadsheet of MI based resources for seeds/ burning/ consulting for pollinator habitat (Updated  April 2021).  To add a name to this list, please email
