Franklin County appreciates BEES! Bees pollinate enough vegetable plants to make Franklin County a top PA producer of vegetables and are integral to the county’s fruit production, too.

A good way to attract bees is by planting herbs and flowers. Some good herbs to plant include chives, mint, lavender, thyme, and oregano.  Crocus, bee balm, and zinnias are good flowers. Try making your own newspaper pots. Find instructions here on how on ExploreFranklinCountyPA’s Fun in Franklin County page.
