Leafcutter bee on clover fllower

You want to grow a leaf source for the mother bee to build her protective leafy cocoons.

You can plant a patch of pea, bean, strawberry, clover, or buckwheat near the bee house. These bees make very small semicircular cuts along the edges of leaves. It’s fun to watch the bees bring home leaf bits and sometimes they use petals to make beautiful cocoons.
