Homeowners in Hermantown learned how to create bee-utiful landscapes over the weekend.

The St. Louis County Extension put on its annual Spring Garden Extravaganza on Saturday. The full-day conference at Hermantown High School was focused on tips to enhance a landscape while improving the habitat for pollinators.

Dr. Karl Foord said people can help keep bees alive by planting flowers and leaving some empty ground for bees to burrow.

"Plus the benefit is that I think you'll be fascinated," Foord said. "These creatures fascinate me. They're beautiful in the things that they do, the way they fly and the way they interact with the plants. So it's a theater, and your garden can now be your own Discovery Channel special."

Foord said it takes a few square feet of flowers to attract bees.
