What can I plant that is friendly to bees and monarch butterflies?
I am planning for my spring 2016 garden and want to make it more friendly to bees and monarch butterflies. I have both shady and sunny areas. I currently have a couple of veggie garden boxes and some flower pots but am looking to add flowers and plants in the yard. I prefer perennial plants over annuals. Any suggestions for me?

Good for you, wonderful idea that will enhance your vegetable garden because it needs pollinators too. The most succinct advice is to plant natives and planting plan for a succession of blooms.
