Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
As spring planting season starts, Tessa R. Grasswitz and David R. Dreesen have shared the preliminary results from 1 1/2 years of researching pollinator friendly plants for NM. Tess Grasswitz spoke at the NM Beekeepers Meeting 2 weeks ago and I know all of us in the audience were writing down plant names as fast as we could! This research has only been conducted for 1 1/2 years, so these recommendations will probably change through time, and hopefully they will keep us updated. You can find the information she presented here.

Tess Grasswitz will be presenting at the NM Organic Conference this weekend if you missed her fantastic and educational presentation at NMBKA.

Jessie, thanks for posting this. It is most helpful!
Great information! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks so much, Jessie! I was one of those furiously writing down plant names, genus and species! This will make it easier to plant this spring and in the future.
