By Wildflower Trails of Mississippi

The field day was held at the Coastal Plain Experiment Station of Mississippi State University’s Extension Service.

It was a great day! We learned about the importance of pollinators (we owe them for one out of every three bites of food) as well as proper maintenance before wildflower plantings.
