I am an avid Water Gardener and a new Beekeeper. I set up a water garden for my Bee’s before I set up the hives since I have read how important a water supply is to the Bee’s and wanted to give them the best possible home. I set up a round preformed pool and planted some submerged plants to help keep the water clean and a few fish to be my “Mosquito Control”, and then I added floating plants for the Bees to land on so it would be easier for them to get some water. I soon found that my Bee’s were visiting the water quite often and their favorite plant was the floating Salvinia. This plant is perfect for them since it is small and floats on the water but is strong enough for them to land on without ending up in the water. I would definitely recommend this plant for any size water container that Bee’s visit.
