Are you looking to attract Australian Native Bees to your garden? Planting flowers is one of the best ways to do this. Native Bees such as stingless bees require three main resources - Nectar, Pollen, and Resin. If possible, try to make sure that you have at least two plants flowering at all times of the year. This ensures that there are ample resources even during periods (such as winter) where there is usually not as many.
