“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years left to live” - Albert Einstein.
Did you know that bees pollinate 1/3 of everything we eat? It’s true! Bees play a vital role in systaining the planet’s ecosystem. Nearly 90% of all crops grown for human food require bees and other insects in order to thrive. Your Vita Beneficial Garden provides an `open slate` to allow you to plant flowers that attract these busy pollinators.
The Vita Beneficial Garden is an attractive garden container that helps you plan out a garden environment to attract beneficial pollinators.

Your new Vita Beneficial Garden is the first garden kit developed for the sole purpose of creating a balanced garden ecosystem. So often in the past gardeners have tried to control and manipulate nature through pesticides or herbicides. A naturally balanced ecosystem consists of a combination of herbs, plants, flowers and vegetables that attract local beneficial insects and provide a balanced garden environment - a naturally thriving ecosystem.
Furthermore, placement of certain flowers within your vegetables attract beneficial pollinators such as bees and butterflies for both beauty and overall health of garden as well as surrounding environment.
Finally, intermingling different herbs and vegetables together (companion planting) can actually bring more flavor than if they were planted independently. As an example planting basil, oregano and tomatoes together enhance each-other’s flavor as they share nutrients in the soil. Flavor in fact comes from the soil. Basil aroma also confuses insects and acts as a natural insect repellent helping your tomatoes resist hungry unwanted insects.
Since growing zones across North America differ greatly we always recommend consulting with a local Garden Centre to help choose the correct herbs, flowers and vegetables to grow together in your Beneficial Pollinator Garden.
Consider your Vita Beneficial Garden as the palette for you to paint your pollinator ecosystem.
We have, however provided a generic Beneficial Garden layout on the following page that covers most growing zones in North America.
This multi layered vessel also creates a visual of shape, texture and colour and offers a classic visual habitat supporting biodiversity in the gardens ecosystem.
