Bagoy's Florist & Home really can't overstate the significance of bees. 1/3 of the food we consume is dependent on pollination, a process that relies mostly on bees. Of the top 100 foods we consume, bees pollinate 70. We're talking everything from avocados and apples to coffee and carrots. This is why maintaining bee colonies, contained in hives or "hotels," is crucial. Just as beneficial? Keeping a bee-friendly garden. Read More about Sunflowers: Popular With Us, Popular With Bees

We tend to think of teacher gifts as coming at the end of the school year, but we here at Bagoy's Florist & Home see a lot of value in giving flowers at its start. It helps everyone bridge the gap between summer and fall. Read More about Bring Summer To The Classroom
