  • Delaware Native Plants for Native Bees

Originally published in 2007 (funded by USDA-NRCS and Delaware Department of Agriculture) this booklet was very popular among master gardeners and others in Delaware and surrounding states.  It didn’t take long for the original print run to disappear.  In June 2009, Matt updated the original version for reprinting by the Delaware Department of Agriculture.

  • Farm Management for Native Bees: a guide for Delaware

This 2007 companion guide to Delaware Native Plants for Native Bees was written with farmers in mind, but would be useful to any landowner wishing to improve their bee habitat.
