To feed pollen to beneficial pests like Bees,Lady Bugs etc in my farm year around, i am planning to make my farm blossom year around. Can you please suggest some flower plants which blossoms around the year or some bunch of plants which blossom seasons wise so that i can achieve above collectively.
I have 4 acres papaya orchard. As part of IPM, I want bees, lady bugs, hover fly etc beneficial insects stay in my farm year around. I have previously introduced marigold plants in my farm but they had stayed for only 3 months.
So I am looking for single plant or some combination of plants through which I can attract them(make them stay in my farm) year around.
I am newbe in farming, it will be great help for me if you could share the names or pics of those plants.
OK. My farm is 100kms away from hyd on srisailm highway.
if you are looking for plants that flower throughout the year, then you need to look around for flowering perennials like hibiscus etc. You can inquire about the same in the nearby nurseries. If you are planning to for more diverse vegetation, even annuals will do the job for you. Search around your farm for wild flowering plants. If you dedicate a strip of land for growing these, they will grow back even if they die.
