Pollinator Garden Progress

June 26, 2019

As we enter summer our new Pollinator Garden is coming into full flower and welcoming new visitors. We have featured this garden in earlier blog posts, but after planting early this spring, it is beginning to come into its own.

The Pollinator Garden is located adjacent to the entrance to National Cathedral School’s Athletic Center, and includes signage designating it a pollinator-friendly spot.

The plants in the garden are labeled with signs that serve as educational tools and to provide ideas for your own pollinator-friendly garden.

We have installed bee tubes as nesting places for “stingless” Mason bees, and now the blooming plants are busy with local pollinators. The Monarda media (Purple Bergamot) in particular is growing vigorously and is joined by Agastache, Rudbeckia, Echinacea, and Amsonsia, among other plants.

All Hallows Guild was founded in 1916 to provide for the care and beautification of the grounds of Washington National Cathedral. The Guild works closely with the horticultural staff to preserve this historic landscape and raises funds for renovation and renewal of the gardens.
